Deborah Newton has used a smorgasbord of neat cables, seed stitch, and texture patterns in this handsome crewneck pullover. To shake things up a bit (and make the knitting more interesting), Deborah incorporates a bit of asymmetry; the front and back are different from each other, and both are different from the sleeves. A smooth worsted-weight wool in muted gray-green shows off the etched stitch play.

Great looking mans's sweater Review by Jeannine

I've been looking for a pattern to make a sweater for my husband for next Christmas (if I don't start early, I'll never get it done in time - ha!). This pattern caught my eye; the mix of cables and decorative stitches work together to form a very pleasing result. It has a rustic, yet classic look that I'm sure my husband will enjoy.

I have only scanned the pattern/instructions so far, as I'm in the process of swatching and trying to decide which yarn I want to use (understanding that I may have to make some changes to the pattern when I know what my gauge will be). Other than that, the process of downloading and printing the pattern was very simple - I appreciate the face that once I've purchased the pattern I can download it again and again. I look forward to getting started on this sweater soon!
