Pattern Description:

Alec was designed to be the perfect sweater for any occasion for your young man.

The textured stitch on the front makes this fun to knit, while being incredibly simple. A buttoned placket makes the neckline comfortable and adjustable, and the optional collar finishes the sweater. A shorter sleeve length is also included.

Although designed for the young man in your life, this sweater is also suitable for young ladies.

Pattern has been test knit by my wonderful testers, and professionally tech edited.
