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:

  • knit, purl, pick up stitches, increase, decrease

Pattern Description:

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

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • XXS (31") to 6X (71")


  • 650-1150 yards super bulky weight yarn
  • sizes 10 (6 mm), 13 (9 mm), and 15 (10 mm) needles

You Will Also Need:

  • stitch marker; removable markers; seven 3/4" buttons
