My sweetie wears this EVERY night, kind of like a bathrobe, through the winter season. This was made about 15 years ago, seemingly ageless (the style) as well as Donegal durable. The only problem I have with this project is, of course, he wants another.

The last photo is of me in mine. We wanted to be twins. :) Actually, the two patterns are back to back in the VK 1995. Somehow, if you’re going to be a knitter, you need to have at least one argyle knitwear piece in your wardrobe.

Both have one row buttonholes and buttons hand sewn by splitting the yarn. Makes ALL the difference.
