I love the simplicity of this stitch pattern. I think it works up beautifully and I love how easy it is to work it into the v-neck shaping without having to pick up for the neckband. The side slits give you plenty of room to move in the hips, and instructions for a shorter length are included if you'd prefer.
In Sailor's Rib, 15 sts and 18 rows = 4"/10cm.
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.
