Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I' not the only one who found the arms way too long. Has this been addressed?

Does any one know what the count is for the foundation chain for the 2x size?

This sweater is manly enough, (depending on the colors and type of yarn used) for a man to wear. Are there any ways to adapt this pattern for a man?

I have a problem with the yarn requirments. I need the largest size and when I figure out how much yarn, it comes out to enough to make an afghan. Is this right? I can't imagine a sweater, even in my size needing that much yarn. Thanks in advance to anyone who helps me out!

I agree, the amount of yarn used in this pattern seems a bit much! The stitches used do take up a lot of yarn, but 70oz. for a 2x??

Too manly for a lady. I would not wear this.

Picture it in pink or purple

Hi all, We've updated the link on the pattern above. Thanks for bringing this to our attention! We apologize for any inconvenience. --Editors of AllFreeCrochet

Theres an error on the link to the pattern /:

Hi favii222, We are working on getting an updated link, check back soon!

But Ivy, this is not for a man. It's called the boyfriend sweater, but that's just its name, its style. It's not for your boyfriend, it's a woman's sweater.

Love this sweater but then on a cold winter night I love a large loose sweater with my leggings a cup of hot coco and a nice fire in the fireplace.

I never thought I would try to make a sweater - but I will now as it is bulky and will layer nicely over a turtleneck & not be to confining if needed for the extreme cold and will look nice with corduroy skirt or pants depending on the yarn used - this is the time to be creative with choice of yarn...Thanks Treva G McGain for sharing the pattern!!!!

I think this is a great sweater! Hugs, Trish

I wouldn't make this garment for my hubby or a boyfriend, because there is a saying over in UK, make a garment for your current boyfriend/hubby, and it is the deathnell to any relationship! Never made anything for my hubby, apart from a tunisian blankie. Ivy Holmes, across the pond!

I realize the sweater is a bit boxy, but I will be making this sweater for our daughter as a Christmas gift. When a Mom can not be at college with her gals this is the perfect sweater that gives hugs during a rainy, snowy weekend or when they just have had a bad day! And no, the pattern was just right as far as making it interesting and just a hair challenging. Thanks.

I find the back post stitches too hard to do. The front post stitches aren't too difficult, but when I try the back posts, they catch on the yarn I don't want to grab and it's just too much of a hassle.

I would give it a try....

No, I wouldn't make it. It's too bulky and shapeless.

I think I would give it try myself. I think it's really a nice sweater. I just wished it was a lot larger size for my lot larger man. It would be nice to find men's sweaters up to size 7X. I have women's sweater patterns that go to 6X.
