Knitting kit for Brick mens sweater in garter/slip stitch pattern
Classic mens sweater with round neck and slip stitch pattern on front piece and sleeves.
The back and front piece is worked in one piece which starts and ends in the left side seam. Stitches are picked up along the armhole and the sleeve is worked back and forth from the shoulder down. The sleeve length is easily adjusted.
Finally a ribbed edge is worked which is folded towards the wrong side of the work whereby the yarn ends from the color changes are hidden - without any fastening.
The pattern is a mix of garter stitch and slip stitch. The sweater is worked with only one color at a time.
