Easy to wear and fun to knit, this boxy sweater lets you play with colour combinations and is the perfect sweater if you are new to colourwork. 

Knit in the round from the bottom up, the sweater begins with a folded hem in a contrasting colour. The body is then worked to the armhole where it separates for the front and back. German short rows shape the shoulders in Garter Stitch for easy shaping. Finally the sleeves are worked in the round from the top down.
