Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Colorwork/stranded knitting

Pattern Description:

eeling your eyebrows are a bit unruly? You haven't bleached or waxed your, uh, facial hair in a bit? Well, this is the way we knitters direct attention away from that sort of thing.

This is a top down, seamless sweater with a bit of colorwork to keep things interesting.

A good project for beginning stranded work, I hope you enjoy it. I get comments on it all the time when I wear it. It makes people smile and that's a good thing in my book.

Fits with approximately 2" positive ease. Shown in 34"

The optional bits on the sleeves were my 10 year old's idea and boy do people get a kick out of them.
