After seeing my Duck Hunt sweater, my cousin enlisted me to knit her a sweater for her highschool.

Only requirements; school colours and to have the mascot. She said a basic sweater would do...but that didn't appeal to me. Some creative altering of a cardigan pattern and voila! we have a retro varsity sweater!

I JUST finished it, so the buttons haven't been sewn on, nor is it blocked. I was a bit eager to post...

I had major issues with the mascot...so humour me and say it looks good. I lost count on how many times I frogged it...ah well. Humour. Me.

Enjoy!


Yes...this is my attempt at a 'knitting is cool' pose.




Close enough eh? It's just that darn head...

I fixed his head a little post-photo...I couldn't sleep. It was driving me insane! It's less wide now.

Ah the miracles of duplicate stitching.
