The boyfriend sweater is the perfect item to grab when you want to relax at the end of the day, sitting on the sofa in front of your favourite film, or when you are outside watching the sun go down. It is a casual style but the details provide a lot of interest, with patterning as a panel down the length of the sleeves and around the mid-frame. The pattern includes notes for two versions. The first version as shown on the front cover includes contrast coloured sleeves and neck trim, while the second is worked in a single shade.

Since I can remember I have been experimenting with art and crafts, trying my hand at many many different things but when my Mam taught me knitting is when I really discovered my passion.
