Dodged the boyfriend sweater curse with this one!
I had knit him a different sweater for christmas but he didn't like it. So we looked through tons of patterns & found the Elizabeth Zimmerman Saddle Shoulder sweater (EZ is popular amongst boyfriends & husbands!) & he wanted grey...boring, but anything to make him happy. Right?
I used 12 balls of Elann Peruvian Wool (which, for the price is AWESOME & it comes in so many different colours..and they are Canadian) and 1 ball of Patons Classic Merino for the contrasting hem (which you can't see in the photo)
It took me about a month to make this & I'm SO happy with how it turned out. Too bad it's summer now & he probably won't be wearing a wool sweater for a while.
