Men’s Half Fisherman’s Rib Pullover – Project Kit
To complement our Ladies’ version in 4-ply, we also have a 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.
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.
LEVEL OF DIFFICULTY
Worked all in the same stitch pattern with only increases and decreases and in 4 pieces, this is a very straightforward project. The
only additional technique is picking up and working stitches for the neckband.
