I was inspired by classic menswear patterns – I wanted to create a crochet pattern that men would actually want to wear, rather than focusing on what the stitcher might want to stitch! Tunisian crochet with a DK weight yarn is perfect for classic pieces – it retains its shape but isn’t stiff or bulky. This pattern originally appeared in "Inside Crochet" magazine, Issue #13.
