Designer Knitting Pattern
This designer knitting pattern is worked from the top down. You will pick up stitches and work set in sleeves using a special technique that results in a very refined finish. Then when you continue with the body and sleeves there are six bands of pattern that will make your knitting experience enjoyable and your new cardigan unique.

This pattern includes instructions for all sizes, a list of all abbreviations, a schematic for accurate blocking, and a glossary of terms. It is accompanied by our proprietary StitchSaver™ Row Checker. Plus, a link is provided to Knitting Help on our web site.

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.”

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.
