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!
Someone gave this super soft copper-colored merino up for free at Squam. The other yarn is Woolen Rabbit Frolic. The only problem is that it pills a lot (the Frolic doesn’t pill at all). Next time I’ll use something more rugged. Still, definitely a knitting success!
