The Box Stitch pattern in this great sweater is a simple one to knit, and with a super bulky yarn, you'll be finished in no time! Wear the sweater without the hood, or button it into the neck ribbing for colder days.
The yarn I used works up at a gauge of 2.5 sts per inch in Stockinette stitch; if you wish to use a different yarn, make sure you find one that will match this gauge.
8.75 sts and 14.5 rows = 4" (10 cm) in Box Stitch, using largest needles
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.
