Boyfriend PDF

$8.00 Each

The sweater equivalent of boyfriend-fit jeans, Lori Versaci's Boyfriend cardigan has positive ease without being oversized. This go-everywhere sweater has a classic shape with a well-defined, twin-ribbed button band and neckline, and front panels in a Lozenge pattern that lends visual interest. Boyfriend is worked in pieces from the bottom up, then the front band is picked up and worked last. Knit in cozy, gorgeous and practical Madeline Tosh DK, Boyfriend can be machine washed. 

This pattern is a downloadable PDF file.
