I am not real thrilled with how the neck turned out, it kinda gapes at the edges. And I had to redo it at least 5 times to get it where it is now. I don't want to do it again! but my son is thrilled and that is all that matters.

It looks very nice and you did a great job! Believe me, it is tough to do sweaters as I have found out! You get better with each one you do! Oh and what a hot model you used! :eyebrow: :rofl:

I think you did a fabulous job! It's really cute! So is your son!

BTW sometimes washing will help things even up and straighten out.

I think it looks really good! The colors are great. And even if the neck is a little wide - although it looks fine in the picture - that's better than being too tight!

Thanks, everyone. He really is thrilled and commented again last night how much he liked it. And it was perfect timing as it has just started getting cold here in the south.

the yarn is a Plymouth yarn, Encore, worsted weight yarn. It is 75% acrylic and 25% wool.
