I finished this sweater a week and a half ago, but was only just now able to photograph it.
I’m pretty pleased with the way it turned out. I had to fudge the pattern numbers, as the smallest size yielded a 42 1/2″ chest, and Joey wanted a pretty slim fit. I cast on 130 stitches with the goal of a 36″ chest allowing for a bit of negative ease in order to achieve the slim fit.
This was a great, quick-to-knit pattern that was very easy to follow. For the yarn, I chose Cascade 109 Tweed in a bright turquoise color. I think it’s a cool, funky cardigan that will keep Joey warm this winter.
The other day, Joey emailed me a link to this similar sweater by Ben Sherman. He said the one I made is “waaaayyy better.”
I completely agree!
