A wide, cropped sweater with simple lines and a deep roll neck. Swift and straightforward to knit, this is a great sweater for beginners.

The sweater is knitted from the bottom up, and begins with an inch of rib, after which it is worked straight to the underarms (length can be added here to make the sweater less cropped, if required).

Two sleeves are worked, then body and sleeves are joined together to be worked in the round. 

The yoke is shaped by decreasing stitches at an even rate from the body only, and, when the correct depth is reached, the stitch count is reduced further for the neck. 

A deep ribbed roll neck is then worked to complete the sweater.
