Boxy is a very simple modern sweater, with a wide body and skinny sleeves. Knit using a lightweight yarn at a looser gauge, it is 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. It's a staff and customer favorite!
To fit chest: 28/30, (32/34, 36/38, 40/42, 44/46, 48/50, 52/54)
