Description

Made my boyfriend this sweater for Christmas. I am so so lucky because it fit from the start without any changes, though I did not have the chance to let him try it on before (you know, surprises…). :)
I found the basic pattern in a German magazin called ‘CUT’, but made several changes. I did want to try color blocking so I simply cut the pattern on my own and used several fabrics.
