Here is the finished project. Finally a sweater of my own! Now back to the sweatshop for my wife. :roflhard:
Izzy thinks it should be her sweater. I suppose she is next.

The simplest styles on men are always the best, and they say men like simple styles! There is a great book called "Knitting a Sweater that He Will Wear!" It is really an eye-opener!

Your sweater is just wonderful! Well knit, good fit, and great color for him!

I like it very much. I think a simple sweater with clean lines looks best on men. I really like the length of the sleeves - nothing worse than skimpy sleeves on men!!!

The yarn used for this project was Lion Brand Fishermen's Wool color 126 Nature's Brown.

The pattern called for 19" sleeves. I measured my arm and knitted them at 23" for a good fit.

The sweater looks wonderful on you, and your Bassett seems to love the way it matches his coat. Great job~~

For a minute there I though you used invisible yarn and made an invisibility sweater (perhaps too much of a Harry Potter joke). ;)

I agree with everyone's assessments, you made a very nice men's sweater. What was your pattern source and is there a link to it?

I'm getting a bit embarrassed that the other guys here have completed sweaters and I haven't even started one... :oops:

Perhaps you (and the other guys) need to toss me a boned and slow down and consider some dishcloth patterns or something like that. LOL

Here's the link, it's a free pattern. It uses bernat denimstyle yarn, but I used Lions Brand Fishermens' wool.
Bernat Denimstyle (3.5 oz/100 g)

You should be embarrassed....letting all us hard working accomplished male knitters down like that....:rofl:

I did CONSIDER some dishcloth patterns....briefly....then thought I'd leave them for the under-achievers.....;)

You could always try crying towels.....:roflhard:
