OK! After I finish this little bit of birthday knitting I have left, I have the ultimate in super duper make-DH-something-he-will-adore plan. I've never knitted anything for him, mostly because he's a picky bastard and I don't want to put a ton of time into something he wouldnt' wear.
Well, the brainstorm has struck. I would really like to knit up a collared, zip-up cardi to look like the soccer zippies soccer fans are so fond of. I'm trying to find a pattern, but without much luck.
Would it work if I used this http://www.helloyarn.com/cyclingaran.htm
minus the cabling? Can I just do stockinette and acheive the same size/shape? The shape of that sweater is precisely what I am looking for.
The jacket for DH would be black with this on the back http://www.bjk.com/
. It's his fav soccer club (DH is from Turkey).
Ambitious? Yes. A way to finally get DH to pick up his dirty socks? Perhaps.
Suggestions for other zip-up cardis would be greatly appreciated!
