Knitting Matters patterns are no longer available for sale.
This is one of my favorite stitch patterns, and when I just happened to use it in this particular color it didn’t take long to realize I’d have to name it Cupid’s Arrows. Depending on your color choice, it could be just as suitable for a man, so I’ve included expanded sizing to accommodate that option.
