A manly sweater, designed to enhance the V-shape they all dream of. The patterned front panel is slightly wider at chest than at hip level, and creates an optical illusion of the perfect male body. The stitch pattern is simple, but one of my favorites for masculine garments, so is the shoulder design, originally unvented by Elizabeth Zimmermann.

It is worked from the bottom up and is almost seamless. Worked in a yarn thin enough for a warm man to wear it, yet durable enough for a lot of use.
