Mr. Man's Sweater




Mr. Macho Man FINALLY got his finished sweater. Man, after almost FOUR months of boring stockinette, the thing is DONE. He really likes it. I took pix of it unblocked because we were both happy to just have the thing finished.

Funny, I don't understand why it's more of a mock-turtleneck than a crewneck. I knit it as written. No mods.

I would love to hear what you think!

  • Very nice! That's a great color on him. How did you like the Sisik? There's a Dale pattern with it I'd like to do someday.

  • Your Manly Man looks like he's enjoying his lovely handknit gift from you. He looks like he's enjoying the modeling,too!
    Maybe the neck is like that because he has , like my husband, a "Football Neck"- a Manly Neck! A thinner neck would not take up the ribbing. But it still looks really nice on him. You did a really terrific job! And your husband will treasure it always.

  • Good job. I love the color. I haven't attempted the saddle shoulder in EZ style yet.
