The Ruke Boxy sweater is a below hip-length knit with a v-neck collar and long straight sleeves. This sweater is worked from bottom to top in separate parts. It means that the front and back are worked separately. Sleeves and the collar are worked only after joining the front and the back parts together through the shoulder line using Kitchener stitch. The sweater body and sleeves are worked straight, so they can be easily made longer/shorter to the desired length and of course, more/less yarns should be estimated than written in the pattern. The sweater is worked in a Lace stitch pattern and has slits on both sides in the Hem part. It is a simple project for those who like flat knitting or who just want to try it.

Language: English

XS (S) M (L) XL (2X) 3X (4X) to be worn with 30cm (12in) positive ease. Shown in size L.

Yarns (3 strands held together):

  1. Ruke knit, Wool (100% wool)
  2. Ruke knit, Wool (100% wool)
  3. Lamana, Premia (60% mohair, 40% silk)

Alternative Yarns:
Good substitutes might be Merino 150 or Hjerte Fine Highland Wool. For the laceweight yarn Rowan Kid Silk Haze  would be perfect. For a truly sumptuous and soft sweater I would hold 2 strands of Walcot Yarns Opus together and leave out the Mohair.
