Banish the ‘boyfriend sweater’ curse. “Totem Sweater” was designed especially for men, with all the features they love.



Designed especially for men, Totem Sweater features a tapered, flattering fit your favorite fellow will be proud to wear. With the front yoke featuring a colorwork design inspired by Native American totem poles, and color blocks for the body, back yoke and sleeves ~ Totem has the sporting attitude men like. This sweater is knit in bulky yarn for a warm sweater that is done in a jiffy.

Knit in the round to the underarms, then split to work the front & back separately, this pattern is written with charting for the front yoke colorwork. Sleeves are picked up around the armholes and knit down to the cuffs.
