All right, you know it. It's the cobblestone pullover from Interweave Knits. Jared did a fantastic job designing a sweater for everyone. Men, women, boys and girls. Anyone could wear it.
Yarn: Classic Elite, skye tweed, #1221, 8 balls.
Needles: size 7
I sat in the dentist office last week knitting on this, when the hygienist asked if I was making this for my daughter. I know the yarn has flecks of pink in it, but he loves it. Hey, boys look great in pink!
Modifications: O.K., here is what I did to make it to fit an eight year old. Cast on 140 st. Garter on the bottom is 1 inch. The garter st up the side has 12 stitches. So, the front and back have 58 stitches. The body (up until the underarm) measures 13 inches. For the sleeves, I cast on 40 stitches, one inch of garter, and increased until I had 56 stitches. The sleeves measure 15 inches. (They are a little long.) As far as the yolk, I always had 2 inches less than the patterns smallest size. I also did one less short row in the first set of short rows, and one less in the second set. Also, I cast off using size 10 needles. (That took three tries to get right.)
