econte:

It's a basic machine knit sweater pattern with licensed intarsia charts for several NFL teams in one booklet.

I started out as a machine knitter (long story there, I won't bore you with it). Its a very different animal than hand knitting, so the sweater pattern can't be read and hand knit, just the intarsia charts.

Given that the NFL is rightly so ticky about licensing, just having the intarsia charts is helpful for those of us who 1) want to do right by our teams, and 2) don't want to mess with making a chart that may or may not work up correctly.

Happy knitting!
