This is a sweater i made for my boyfriend for Christmas, that i finished in february! haha.
its kinda hard to see the pattern but i worked forever on it and it looks really nice in the sweater.
also, i had to re-do the sleeves twice because when i made him "normal" sleeves they were way too tight on his arm, and since he lives 1 1/2 to 3 hours away(depending on whether i'm at home or school, i couldn't really measure it all the time. also, in the picture of him wearing it they look a little short. theyre actually relaly long and i rolled them up without realizing i rolled them too much!
hope you like it!

this was his response to my explanation about the sleeves!

it was hard to see the intricacy of the pattern in the middle, but trust me, my hands hurt for a while after it! heh

thank you all soo much for the lovely comments!

as far as yarn and patterns go,
for the yarn i believe i used  Lion Brand wool ease yarn. I think its the best yarn for the price.
as for patterns, i didnt use a pattern for the sweater itself. i usually do it by eye, and compare it to a store bought sweater for size. the middle part i got from a russian pattern book, so if someone is really interested in it, i can either try to find it online, or write it out from that book when i'm home for break.

thanks for all the lovely comments!
