  • A lightweight menswear cardigan or pullover in ten sizes (XS/S/M/L/1X/2X/3X/4X/5X/6X) with subtle unisex styling—a plain fabric in fine, tweedy wool, accented by vertical bands of twist-stitch detail to add just the right touch of texture. Worked in a lofty, lightweight fingering yarn, this sweater is destined to become a year-round favorite for home, office, and travel.
    Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size, yardage requirement, and/or drape.
