Pattern description from Last-Minute Knitted Gifts: “Handknit sweaters for men present a constant challenge. Not only are men hard to design for, their sweaters can be so big that they take forever to finish! This sweater is knit using a chunky wool and is made in one piece, in order to keep the knitting moving quickly. the red zipper, a modern touch, provides an element of color and fun while still keeping the sweater looking masculine. It also gives a man the option of wearing the sweater open if he’s the type that gets hot easily.”
