Boxy Worsted Sweater by Joji Locatelli - Printed Pattern
This is a very simple modern sweater, with a very wide body and skinny sleeves. Worked with a worsted weight yarn at a very loose gauge, it is very flattering, drapey and stylish! A little short row section in the shoulders adds an interesting texture to the sleeves.
Directions are given to make a seamless version (worked in the round) or a seamed version (worked back and forth) of the body. The sleeves and the neckband are worked seamlessly in the round in both versions.
Gauge: 14 st and 20 rows to 4 inches.

Needle Size: US 9 (5.5mm) straight or circular needles for the body (directions for seamed and seamless versions are provided). US 9 (5.5mm) and US 7(4.5mm) circular needles for the neckband and sleeves (needed for both versions).
