Finally, finally the sweater for my oh-so-patient son Prithvi, is done! It turned out great and he loves it.
Remember how I blogged a while ago that I ran out of yarn while knitting this sweater and had to order more? The extra skeins that were mailed to me matched perfectly!
The sweater turned so incredibly soft after I washed it and he absolutely loves wearing it. I wish I’d gotten a bit more ease because when he buttons this cardigan up, it looks a bit snug. But teenagers aren’t into the whole button-down thing anyway, so it worked out fine.
I made a whole bunch of modifications to this pattern and didn’t do a very good job of taking notes. I mostly knit things to size and changed up the numbers for the various increases and decreases. The overall design is the same, but the numbers were adapted to my gauge being different and a smaller chest size than what the pattern was written for.
Ranger (Ravelry notes)
Pattern: Ranger by Jared Flood published in BT Fall 11
Yarn: Malabrigo Rios in “Paris Night”
Needles: Size US 6, 7/4, 5 mm
This cardi looks wonderful on your guy. It must feel great to know he loves it!
OH, Congrats on finishing a sweater – I can only dream of finishing one as I’ve never finished any. I have 3 or 4 sweaters in progress, but I JUST can’t finish them. I have knitting ADD. Sweaters are too long-term for me! It is beautiful and I’m so glad he loves it, too!
It was worth the wait. It looks great on P. Do I see more knits for him in the future?? Glad he loves it!
Oh what a nice sweater… which beautiful young man !
