Knitted in a simple check pattern with garter-stitch welts, neck trim, and cuffs, this sweater is simple enough that you will be able to relax as you knit. If youve never worked with all-over knit-and-purl stitch patterns, this sweater is a good first project for trying out this design technique. Simple texture patterns: all-over and horizontal bands. Lower body worked in the round with bottom welts, and upper body sections worked back and forth. Relaxed body fit and wide sleeves y Square neckline, with finishing trim knitted all-in-one with body. Sleeves knitted from texture-stitch lower edge to shoulder and sewn on. GAUGE 5 stitches and 7 rows to the inch (20 stitches and 28 rows to 10 cm).
