A very big sweater

I made a sweater for my husband! Wow, his arms are LONG. Luckily I took this project on a two week vacation. Otherwise, I may never have finished it.

I used the Cobblestone pattern by Brooklyn Tweed.  I was worried about this pattern because a lot of the projects that I saw on Ravelry didn’t seem to fit that well.  The men wearing them looked like they were drowning in sweater.    I made the smallest size and extended the length.  I think a little bit of negative ease worked great, but lots of men don’t want negative ease.  Thankfully he loves it and wears it several times a week!
