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.

Boyfriend approved!

He looks so handsome and proud in his sweater.  I wish my man would be so happy with anything I knit.  You're both so lucky.

Beautiful! And, I'm glad you dodged that curse.

By the way, is it rude to ask what was the pattern of the sweater he rejected?
