I am impressed. I dont often see patterns that are geared more toward mean. I like it. This sweater has a very masculine look and would work very well in a business office setting when the work attire does not require you to wear a suit and tie. Very nice sweater for the winter and colder months of Fall.

My mother has been begging me to make her a sweater. I have to admit it is a bit daunting to take one the task of creating one, however the pattern looks easy enough. Also, the finished sweater looks really finished and well created. I think I will put this pattern on my To Do list.
