A rough and tumble boy may not appreciate intricate colorwork or cables, but he definitely wants something to keep him warm. This project does just that--its a basic sweater with a modern neckline to set it apart. It is created with extra ease to allow him the greatest freedom of motion for his outdoor adventures and to help it last a little longer. Because it’s worked top-down, you can easily remove the original hem and cuffs to add length later on. Shown in Size 10. This sweater originally appeared in Kate's book, Knits for Boys!
