Doug Eyelet Sweater

FREE SHIPPING

Free Backpack Project Bag • Free Unique Row Checker

After finishing this design I liked wearing it so much that I created versions for both fingering and worsted weight yarn. So one can do as I do and wear it year round. The stockinette yoke combined with a generous grid of open eyelet and fitted ribbing on the body and arms works to expand the chest and diminish the waist. The worsted weight yields a looser fit while the fingering option produces a lighter weight sweater that hugs the body. This top down design without seams and invisible raglan increases provides techniques that add up to a pattern that is both interesting and rewarding. And the result of your needlework could add up to a great gift for yourself or someone else. Then again, if you like it as much as I do, two gifts.

    Backpack-style project bag in two views: on model and showing contents - James Cox Knits

    The kit for this sweater, which contains the yarn and pattern, comes in a backpack-style project bag. On the front of the backpack is a zippered pouch with a porthole. You can insert the ball of yarn from which you’re knitting and run the yarn through the porthole, so if you like, you can even knit while walking down the street. A great knitting gift for men and for women who knit for men.

    Note: needles and handsome guy not included.
