This sweater is so easy to work, and makes a nice canvas for a colorful self-striping tweed or marled yarn. The pattern includes both a women's and a men's version. Customize the length by working it to match the length of your favorite sweater.
The yarn I used works up at a gauge of 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.
19 sts and 27 rows = 4" (10 cm) in Seeded 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.
