This may be a long-overdue finished object post, but it was one of the most satisfying knitting experiences I’ve had in a long time. It was simple, but never mindless; challenging in concept and elegant in design; resulting in a handsome, practical, and now well-loved sweater.

Love it, and your yarn choice! i have this issue and was thinking of making it for my husband. Glad to see pics on a real person. Did it come out pretty true to pattern or did you have to do any alterations?
I love it!!!!!! It looks awesome & you did a wonderful job!
Gorgeous! Great yarn choice, and it looks really nice. After seeing yours, I really need to re-start mine….
That looks amazing! I have been debating making this for ages and was even thinking of using that yarn. I think you might have pushed me over the fence…
I absolutely love it! It’s such a great color and the garter stitch alternated with stockingnette looks so cool!
That is a great sweater! I loved it when I saw it in the magazine, and now I love it MORE! Were you satisfied with the yarn?
That sweater looks awesome. I’m disappointed that my hubby does NOT want me to knit him that sweater :(
Gorgeous job on the Cobblestone. I totally agree! While I haven’t finished mine (yet!) it is a fantastic and thoroughly enjoyable knitting project and a perfect “first sweater” project for a new knitter.
Looks great on the model, too! :) Cheers!
