Notes

I finished it! Finally! I have never worked on a sweater for this long! This is definitely not a project for an impatient knitter. I wouldn’t recommend it as a “Beginners” level pattern either. Yes, the pieces are easy (albeit, incredibly time consuming) to knit but there is no seaming information, no instructions for how to pick up stitches for the sleeves and the illustrations are not great. I’ve knitted many a sweater and while this guy is simple it’s very tedious so be prepared if you plan to take it on!

The yarn I used, Cotlin by KnitPicks, is easy to work with, has great drape and texture. You can feel little twigs of linen in it while you’re working but it smooths out nicely after blocking. I am worried it might pill over time but this project is not for me so I’ll have to get updates.

The pictures featured are of the sweater almost finished, I’ll get some finished ones up soon. I’m waiting for my tags to come so I can sew them into the back then it’s off to my Aunt Stacy’s where it will live a long and useful life!

Current pics are at the top! I’m really happy with how this guy turned out. I already have ppl asking me to knit them one too! To which I say, “Hahahaha! That’ll be a million $’s pls!” I’m taking a sweater break!!! Bonus pic of me looking dorky. :)
