Alec was designed to be the perfect sweater for any occasion for your young man.
What’s the sparkly gold gift tag for? This pattern is included in the 2013 Indie Design Gift-A-Long! Get this pattern and you can also participate in the Indie Design Gift-A-Long group.
The textured stitch on the front makes this fun to knit, while being incredibly simple. A buttoned placket makes the neckline comfortable and adjustable, and the optional collar finishes the sweater. A shorter sleeve length is also included. Knit seamlessly, in the round, there is very little finishing to be done.
Although designed for the young man in your life, this sweater is also suitable for young ladies.
Pattern has been test knit by my wonderful testers, and professionally tech edited.
