Cotswold Henley



Meghan Babin

The designer set out to design a sweater that any guy would want—the result was the Cotswold Henley, a rugged-looking sweater with a bit of sophistication in the fit and in such details as the tubular cast-ons and bind-offs.

Finished Size 36¼ (40, 42¾, 47½, 52¼)” chest circumference. Henley shown measures 42¾”, modeled with 2¾” of positive ease.

Yarn Briggs & Little Regal (100% wool; 272 yd [249 m]/4 oz [113 g]): forest brown, 5 (5, 6, 7, 7) skeins.

Needles Sizes 7 (4.5 mm) and 5 (3.75 mm): 24″ and 16″ circular (cir) and set of doublepointed (dpn). Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.

Notions Markers (m); size G/6 (4 mm) crochet hook; waste yarn for provisional CO; cable needle (cn); stitch holders; tapestry needle; three 1 1/8″ buttons.
