My boyfriend has this really lovely sweater that makes him look very handsome. I thought my son would look cool in the same kind of sweater, and made one for him. This sweater is much lighter and fitted for the Summer than his Dads was. Its a pretty easy knit!

Its just knit stiches pretty much the whole sweater. I started by making the body piece, knitting in the round. I casted off for arms and neck at the same time. I then knitted the arms, and assembled the whole sweater, before picking up stitches around the neckline to knit the overlapping collar. Easy peasy!

you DO have a handsome son. I saw this picture on the front page and it really looked like a children's cataloge picture. His eyes are just so big!

The sweater looks great, as well. Great job!

Gorgeous job on both son and sweater! I agree, looked like a catalog page in the thumbnail.

thanks for the new link astormorray, my computer just wouldn't take the original.

once i get over my fear of dpn's and just jump in, i'll try it out.
and if it works, i'll buy the bigger pattern. (i have a while until my nephew will be that big anyways.)
