I may be wrong, but don't Boys Grow out of everything?
i have girls and they grow differently
i hear Boys grow out of their sleeves and cuffs faster than any other part of their clothes

SHARP! I'll bet he looks handsome in that!! Good boy sweaters are hard to find, and that looks like a winner to me!

I love the pattern! He can just cuff the sleeves if they're a bit long. It looks nice!

seriously handsome- what a great sweater. and I agree he can just turn back the cuffs if they are a little too long, until he grows. I'll have to seriously think about that pattern for the hubby... thanks for sharing the pictures! MKZ

Bummer, I was hoping he was a young boy as I want a nice pattern for my 7 year old grandson for Christmas and this looks just the ticket! You did a superb job!

That's a great sweater! and better that he pushes the sleeves up a bit and wears it for longer than that they be too short. Good job. :cheering:

great sweater, it looks good on him. Some people like long sleeves to be too long.

I love the sweater, I have been mulling a sweater pattern for my husband. I wanted something form fitting that he can wear underneath a leather jacket. This might work well. Did you design the sweater? is this a published pattern somewhere?

As for the too long sleeve, the radical solution would be to pull a strand and take off the cuff, take away how many inches are too long and pick up the stitches and reknit the cuff. the only tricky part would be to find a good cast off method that would not make the sleeve yawn too much. I am not sure what would work, I am not an expert! worth a try if the sleeves are just too uncomfortable.

I got the pattern from a book called Knitted Cold-Weather Sweaters by Better Homes and Gardens.It's published by Leisure Arts. It's a 44 page book lots of nice sweaters.Thanks for the tip I'm gonna hve to do something with those sleeves :wall:
