I finished this sweater for my husband's birthday. It went pretty fast, and it's the second sweater I've made by this pattern designer. It was perfect for mindless knitting!

ohmygod, that looks awesome. I have been working on this sweater (my first sweater) for my boyfriend for months! I guess I am a slow knitter..how long did it take you to finish? I am about ready to go crazy!

Great job!

Great job!  I was a little intimidated by the pattern, but after seeing the finished product,  I just may make it for my husband

thanks everyone! it was really easy, but the part that took me the longest was getting up the energy to seam it all together. according to my records it took me a month from start to finish.. i knit an average of 12-15 hours a week and i wasn't working on any other projects while this one was going on.

That looks great!  I'm thinking of making it for a friend, and I'm glad to hear the pattern worked well.

what a cutie! (both the sweater and the husband!)

i love it when people post pics of the sweaters from SnB; it gives me hope that i will eventually create them myself. (i don't knit nearly as much per week as bekee, and i generally have a million projects going on at one time, so they tend to take a loooooong time.)

awesome job!

Hey Frankie - thanks for the link to Kate's Blog - I made her Noro Iro bucket hat and didn't realize she was the creator of the Man Sweater too - I like her style!

Bekee - fantastic job!! you inspire me to try it for my husband Smiley

Hello,

Your completed sweater looks wonderful.  I am planning to start this sweater soon, and wanted to ask of those who have made it: Have you found the completed sweater to be pretty true to size?  The intended recipient is a medium, usually, but I've noticed posts on other SnB sweaters saying that the sizing can be a little off for them - should I be making a size large to be safe, or will I be ok with medium?  Thanks for your help.
