I think it looks great! And he really does look so happy to be wearing it. He also looks proud of you, which you should be too. It's quite the accomplishment to finish your first sweater and I think it looks amazing. Who cares if it's too big, you meant to do that, right?

I think your sweater looks just fine on him!! He can also take advantage of that sweater during the winter, wearing a shirt underneath the sweater. I think it will be very practical too!!

Sincerely,

Jenny

That's a great sweater! I'm very impressed that it's your first! And your hubby is obviously very proud of it (and you.)

I completely agree!

I think it looks great! It's not fitted but that's a style all its own. To me, "too big" means you look like you're wearing someone else's clothes or you just lost a lot of weight and the garment simply hangs and droops on you. The sweater looks great on your husband and if I were you, I'd be very proud! That's a nice color choice for him, too.

That is a great looking sweater! I see nothing wrong with it. The pattern evidently called for full sleeves. I have been disappointed with a finished pattern because of the sleeves before. I hate when they show the model wearing the sweater with the sleeves pushed up on their arms so you can't see the drape. The Sweater Workbook helped me a lot with paying attention to details like that in patterns.
