Description

my boyfriend is deciding to be more stylish now that he’s got an internship, so i figured i’d help him out a little bit =)

the fabric is a gray and black striped cotton jersey i got from etsy. it’s extremely fragile, and since i had a lot of problems with the facing (and knit fabrics in general) i had to compensate for some holes. he hasn’t tried it on yet (pictures will be put up when he does, as he lives an hour and a half away), but i feel like the sleeves may be a little short. i also wish the facing was a little bigger, but over all i’m happy with the pattern.

Material Notes

gray and black striped cotton jersey from etsy and black rib knit from joann’s

    I agree – it will be great to see it on him. This pattern looks like a fantastic alternative to a knitted cardi for those of us who cannot knit.
