About the designer

At 6' tall, I used to have a hard time finding sweaters with long enough sleeves. So I took up knitting to make my own sweaters.

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knitting, purling, picking up stitches, yarnovers, increases, decreaeses

Pattern Description:

The lovely Acorn Stitch pattern is an easy one to memorize; it's basically a checkerboard with yarnovers and decreases every 4 rows. The body is worked in one piece to the armholes, and the sleeves are worked in-the-round, so you only have to sew the sleeves into the armholes. Instructions for both 3/4-length and long sleeves are included. Work the I-Cord ties as instructed, or use a shawl pin or stick pin to close the fronts.

The yarn I used works up at a gauge of 5 sts per inch in Stockinette stitch; if you wish to use a different yarn, make sure you find one that will match this gauge.
