This handsome pullover will work up quickly, given the easy stitch pattern. With his and hers sizing right in the pattern, make one for yourself and one to give to a friend or family member.
The yarn I used works up at a gauge of 4-4.5 sts per inch in Stockinette stitch; if you wish to use a different yarn, make sure you find one that will match this gauge.
24 sts and 25 rows = 4" (10 cm) in Garter Rib, using larger 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.
