I think he’s doing the geek-chic thing and because of this, I suggested knitting an 8-bit character into the pattern. To keep it nice and subtle, I used the same yarn in similar shades and we picked the iconic pacman ghost as the motif.
This was actually much easier to knit that the sweater version, though still came up larger that I’d thought it would. I really enjoyed the v-neck and the addition of the picture. The variation broke up what might otherwise have been a limiting knit – just being stocking stitch and all…
