The wide overlapping neck makes for easy dressing. I-cord worked as you go gives a smooth finish to the neck opening and forms integrated buttonloops.

Purchase and download from Ravelry, or we can sell it to you at the shop. Requires size #4 needles (22 stitches and 32 rows = 4 inches in st st)for working in the round on sleeves and body (although the yoke is worked straight), and 240-510 yards of dk weight yarn.
