Protego - Latin for To Protect.
This pullover definitely protects the wearer from the cold! Modeled after the one Harry Potter wears in the woods in Deathly Hallows Part 1. This pullover is knit flat in pieces, then seamed together. With the right side rows all knit, and a little texture on the wrong side rows, this pullover is an easy knit that will keep you interested. Simple enough that your guy will love it, but interesting enough that you’re not bored to tears knitting it. :-)
