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."
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.
This sweater pattern is very rewarding. Inspired by the classic white dress shirt, the body and the sleeves are worked top-down in one piece. Crafting buttoned cuffs, shirt collar and folded hem shirt tails contribute to the pleasure of creating an everyday garment that is truly sophisticated.

Louet’s Euroflax – Sport - 100% Linen
This elegant linen yarn achieves exceptional softness that is the result of fine splitting the long flax fibers and double boiling the yarn during production. The result is a strong, easy-to-care-for yarn that grows softer each time you wash it. It is non-allergenic and can absorb 20% of its weight in water without feeling damp. The pectins in the fiber give it a heat-regulating quality. Machine washable and dryable.
The on-screen color representations for yarn may not be precise representations of actual colors due to variance in monitor calibrations.
