Gregg, the model, wanted to take this one home. He said it was one of the most comfortable sweaters he had ever had on! This is a great piece for the man in your life. It is fun to knit without being 'too much' for a man to wear. Shoot, it would look great as a boyfriend sweater on women too! The wonderful saddle shoulder construction makes the cables really steal the show and allows for broad shoulders to fit comfortably. Choose a lovely tweed for added texture. Color choice is important here as the lighter the color the more the cables will pop! Easily adjustable to really customize the right size for you or the man in your life!
