Finally, finally the sweater for my oh-so-patient son Prithvi, is done! It turned out great and he loves it.
Remember how I blogged a while ago that I ran out of yarn while knitting this sweater and had to order more? The extra skeins that were mailed to me matched perfectly!
The sweater turned so incredibly soft after I washed it and he absolutely loves wearing it. I wish I’d gotten a bit more ease because when he buttons this cardigan up, it looks a bit snug. But teenagers aren’t into the whole button-down thing anyway, so it worked out fine.
I made a whole bunch of modifications to this pattern and didn’t do a very good job of taking notes. I mostly knit things to size and changed up the numbers for the various increases and decreases. The overall design is the same, but the numbers were adapted to my gauge being different and a smaller chest size than what the pattern was written for.
