This is a great sweater to throw on over a tank top for extra warmth on a cool summer evening. If you would prefer a longer sweater, you can just keep working until it's the length you want, since the sweater is worked from the top down.
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.
23 sts and 28 rows = 4" (10 cm in Openwork Pattern
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.
