The Mister's Sweater

The Mister's Sweater is a modern take on the classic, slouchy golf cardigan or pullover in ten sizes (XS/S/M/L and 1X through 6X) with optional body shaping for a neat, casual fit. An allover knit/purl houndstooth check adds texture, while button detail on hem and neckband completes the stylized look. All pieces are knit flat, bottom up and seamed. 

Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size, drape, and fit.
