The Harrison Sweater
The Harrison Sweater - The sweater you steal from your man, every time.
Sometimes the thought of crocheting and knitting for the guy in your life can seem daunting. What a slog! What a pain it will be to make a sweater in his size, in a blah color that he likes but will not be fun for you to work with. I feel your pain.
So, here is The Harrison Sweater. It’s a sweater your guy will love to wear. But even better, it’s the sweater you won’t mind one bit crocheting for your man. WHY? You look good in it too and you can steal it.
Sure, when you go to the yarn store you can tell him the yarn will be for his sweater. (Hint: This yarn doesn’t count as stash because it’s yarn for HIM! he he!) So, go ahead, get the yarn he wants. Yep, talk him into that super soft cashmere and merino blend and duh, let him pay for it. It’s his sweater after all…
He will love you for ever and BONUS, you’ll get an awesome sweater out of it!
Warm and substantial, the basketweave pattern on this sweater is sure to keep your favorite guy snug on a blustery winter day. The casual
shape allows for comfort and ease, while the interesting stitch design adds some eye-catching appeal. Select a yarn in his favorite color and
add unique buttons to create a sweater he will wear all winter.
