Sized for all the men in your life—with three boys’ sizes and three men’s sizes—this sweater is both rugged and stylish. It is worked cuff to cuff first in back-loop-only half double crochet, and then the body is picked up and worked downward in front-loop-only single crochet. The easy shaping is simple enough that you can watch the game with your boys while working on their sweaters. And the washable merino will let them wear it all the time.
