Men’s Half Fisherman’s Rib Pullover – Project Kit


To complement our Ladies’ version in 4-ply, we also have the Half Fisherman’s Rib Pullover  men’s version in DK. They are both suitable for anyone, so if you prefer working in DK, this is the option for all genders! The fitted sweater is worked in four main pieces, then seamed together. The Half Fisherman’s Rib makes a lighter and more economical garment than a full Fisherman’s Rib and is quicker to work as well! This is a comfortable and easy-to-wear item for casual or work activities.

Pattern Level of Ability: Easy

Our kit can be ordered in any shade of Shetland DK from our coffee range. It will arrive in one of our cotton tote bag, with the pattern and wool for your size ordered.

More Information
