One of Joji Locatelli's most popular patterns is the Boxy sweater.  This is the v-neck version.  Unlike the original, it is also worked from the top down to please most knitters’ preference for this method. As with the original pattern, both versions (knitted flat and knitted in the round) are included.

Gauge: 23 st and 33 rows to 4" (10 cm) in Stockinette st on US 4 (3.5 mm) needles. Before you measure, please take the time to wash and block your swatch in the same manner that you will wash and block your sweater.

SIZES
The given sizes are called XS (S, M, L, XL, XXL, 3XL, 4XL) and they are recommended to fit a chest size of 28/30 (34, 38, 42, 46, 50, 54, 58/60) inches 75/80 (85, 95, 105, 115, 125, 135, 145/150) cm.
Shown in size M on a 36” bust.

Finished Measurements: This sweater has a lot of positive ease built in this means that the finished product is way bigger than your bust measurement. However, not all the sizes have the same amount of ease built in, and that's on purpose. Larger sizes don't need the sweater to be as oversized as smaller sizes. I would recommend you choose a size according to your bust measurement and the list of sizes above. For example: if you have a 40" (100 cm) bust size, choose size L. The finished sweater will have a circumference of 66.5" (166 cm).
