Description

This dashing gent chose the fabric combination himself.

The surprise toile of the Andrew for the man in my life was well received. The next step – complete freedom to chose your own fabric, Mister!

What a delightful result. Comfortable and warm. And, it is interesting what the fabric choices reveal about his personality. He is born and bred in the city, but there is a distinct country influence, here. So, I played it up with the toile fabric Handsome label.

Material Notes

wool tweed (with a little give); wool ribbing (with a hint of nylon in the blend); leather (look?) buttons

    You lined up the pattern perfectly! I, too, want to make this one for my man, but I think I’ll call mine the “Big Daddy”. ;)

    Very handsome Sweets!!! I agree with everyone – very “English Gentleman at Leisure”!!! He should take up trout fishing and then take you out for a lovely stroll on the moors! Lovely job – the buttons and the wool are such a classic combination and I must say I am impressed by his style re the choosing of the fabric. Nice matching of the lines and it’s good to see that new machine of yours is getting a workout for the lovely lable.

    PS I am really rather taken by the fluffy chap watching on while reclining on the sofa . . ;) xxxxxx

    I really like this sweater – it looks like it should be worn with beige trousers, some wellie boots and a flat cap though!
