Portuguese Fisherman's Sweater - 2nd try
Okay, don't know why I have been unable to upload the photo of the sweater (it's a 285x300 pixel jpeg) (my husband asked me to please exclude his head ... ). Trying again. This is a sweater which I reverse-knitgineered from one purchased in Portugal. It is a billboard sweater with drop sleeves knitted in RedHeart Grande. The primary pattern stitch is the cluster stitch. little audrey

Wow. Looks nice and squishy (sweaters should be "squishy").
Love the color too.
What's a "billboard sweater"?

You just figured this out yourself from one you had? You did a really good job. Turned out great.
