Available in both men's and boys' sizes, this pullover makes a great gift for all the men in your life. It is worked cuff-to-cuff in back-loop-only half double crochet with the body stitches picked up and worked downward in front-loop-only single crochet. The easy shaping and simple stitches make this a relaxing go-to project while spending time with your boys.
