One of 6 patterns included in the Handsome: Man Sweaters for Every Body ebook.

Elliot is a triangle party, a colorwork celebration, a stranded cardigan worked seamlessly in the round. Knit with feather-light woolen-spun fingering-weight yarn, it’s a warm, light layer. When made in a sturdier sport-weight yarn at the same gauge, it’s more like a fall jacket. Optional pockets can be lined with contrasting yarn. Because of Elliot’s colorwork, steek, and seamless construction, it’s recommended for experienced or expert knitters

Elliot is written for 13 sizes, ranging from 32” to 64” finished chest measurement. Like all 6 designs in the Handsome ebook, Elliot comes with free calculators to help customize your sweater’s fit, including sleeve length and body shaping (A-line, V-line, or X-line).
