Knitting kit for Chess mens sweater with pocket
Checkered pattern is worked in a combination of garter sts and shaker rib, 2 rows in bc and 2 rows in CC alternately, working only one color at a time. Every second row, i.e. all rows from the back side are all knit stitches, making this pattern easy to work. Sleeves are worked from neckline and downwards in plain BC shaker Rib, where ever alt. row is a knit row. Leaving out the pocket will not alter the check pattern.
The knitting kit contains: Yarn for the selected size and a pattern.
