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 can be the ideal unisex option.

The fitted sweater is worked in four main pieces, then seamed together. The half Fisherman’s Rib and is quicker to work as well! This is a comfortable and easy-to-wear item for casual or work activities. 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.

We recommend using one of our DK yarns such as Pure Shetland DK/Coffee Range – Blacker Yarns or Pure Shetland DK – Blacker Yarns for this pattern.
