This is a very simple sweater, and at 4 sts to the inch, it works up quickly. The pattern includes a women's and a men's version. The sweater makes a great canvas for a tweed, marled, or self-striping yarn!

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.
