After many requests from discerning grown-up knitters, here is the comfy adult version of the popular Lincoln Baby Sweater. No buttons on the shoulder, though. The split hem adds ease, the textured yoke patterns is a four-row repeat and there is enough mindless stockinette for movie night.
The body starts with a split hem in pattern stitch. Then it’s joined and worked in the round to the armholes. After dividing for front and back, the yoke is worked flat in textured stitch. Sleeves are picked up and worked down, so no seams at all!
