This pattern is very easy to follow, and uses basic techniques that even someone new to knitting can follow. The design allows for very easy sizing adjustments, just follow the sizing listed for the chest size. Sleeve and torso length can be altered just by adding or ommitting as many rows of stockinette stitch as needed. It allowed me to easily make a great fitting sweater for my extra tall, but very slim son. He loves it and has requested another in a different color!
