Complimentary StitchSaver™ Row Checker and Backpack Project Bag

Kit
This kit includes yarn, the pattern with instructions for all sizes, a list of all abbreviations, glossary of terms, and a crisp schematic with dimensions for proper blocking.

StitchSaver Row Checker

"It is hard to make a mistake with our unique complimentary Row Checker. It helps you keep track of stitch count row-by-row for each section of the pattern, plus all increase and decrease shaping. With check off boxes for each row you can put this project aside for a week, a month or a year and return to the exact spot where you stopped."
- James

Knitting Help
For your convenience, we’ve collected definitions for abbreviations, links to tutorial videos that may make knitting your project easier and more fun, as well as guides to techniques and tailoring. Visit the Knitting Help page on our website.

Pattern
This lightweight top or beach coverup is worked in two pieces. The way the fabric drapes means you have no shaping for the neckline. The front and back are exactly alike, so it is reversible. So, that’s two tops in one. Each is worked flat from the hem to the shoulders. The sides are then sewn using the invisible garter stitch seam, and the shoulders are finished with the three-needle bind off. It couldn’t be much simpler or more comfortable.

Yarn
GGH’s Reva, Sport/Fingering, 95% Recycled Cotton, 5% Other Fibers, 2-ply, Eco-yarn

In our efforts to find eco-friendly yarns, we were delighted to discover Reva. If you’d like to support the growing tend to recycle and reuse in the fashion industry, work with this beautiful, recycled yarn. Its subdued color palette and subtle textured finish creates a casually sophisticated look. So, its soft easy drape will feel good for more reasons than one.

GGH’s Scarlett, DK, 100% Egyptian Cotton, Eco-yarn

This fine cotton from Egypt is divine. The feel in our hands and the resulting drape in the finished garment will delight you. The on-screen color representations for yarn may not be precise representations of actual colors due to variance in monitor calibrations.

Testimonials

Sophisticated, elegant, stylish, chic. After seeing James’ collection, I may give up needlepoint.

These designs take men's sweaters to a whole new level of luxury and deliciousness. Might have to get a new man once my divorce goes through, just so I can knit him a James Cox Knits sweater.
