This is a terrific sweater. I love green so you know I like that part. :-) What is that textured stitch called? I'm sure John will get a lot of use out of this sweater. It looks so warm and is so attractive. Zippers are nice, but I'm not overly fond of putting one in. As always the finishing touches are just right.

I recently bought Sweater Wizard 3.0. I just had Tom download it for me before he went to bed.
Hi Judy!

The pattern stitch is "faux rib". I've seen it called 'broken rib' too. You know, k1p1 across the WS, and all knits across the RS. Easy to make a mistake with the k1p1 sequencing on the WS cuz the increases at side edges change the sequence. It could also be worked at k1p1 from the RS, all purls across the WS.

You will love the Sweater Wizard. I think I included some basic steps about using it in my JOHN'S JACKET notes on Rav. I know that you will especially get tons of use out of Sweater Wizard! He is your architect! You are the designer & the builder! Message me when you begin to use the Wizard! I'd love to hear your feedback!

John does love this jacket. He picked the cypress green color from 3 choices I had. The cypress tweed, licorice tweed, and hazelnut tweed. I thought he'd pick the hazelnut or licorice. I am so glad he picked the cypress cuz I had absolutely no idea whatsoever what I'd do with it otherwise! I can't wear that shade of green, and I don't know anyone else in my circle of fam and friends that could. Phew!

Thanks knittwitt! I appreciate your kind words.

Naw, I won't be selling the pattern. The Knitting of my own design (with the aid of the Sweater Wizard as my architect) was, for the most part, easy and straight forward.

However, WRITING OUT the pattern for someone else to follow, that is waaaay out of my league. I mean WAY!

Thanks for the vote of confidence!

Wow, that's great! I've been looking for something to make that my partner will actually wear (his name is John too!), and something like that might actually fit the bill! Beautiful job on it, too...hope to someday knit like you! The zipper especially is, as everyone says, beautifully done.

Absolutely gorgeous. I'm with everyone else when I say that my husband might actually wear a sweater like that. However, I don't think mine would look quite as perfect. Good job.

Gorgeous sweater. I am glad you are enjoying that sweater wizard. Sounds like it will get good use with your creative skills. He looks so handsome in it.

Dollyce, I had been on the fence about sweater wizard, but with that glowing recommendation I think I'll take the plunge next month!
