Argyle Skater Sweater

Well, here at last is a design I have been wanting to do for a couple of years! Originally, I wasn't going to show it to you b/c I wanted to submit it to Knitty- but I decided that with everything else I am doing right now I do not want to take the time to resize this pattern 4 more times for a magazine. So, here it is. I'm offering the pattern for sale for $3.oo. It is a one size only- 41" chest.
The length is customizable, as it is a seamless top-down knit. B/c of the intarsia, and the number of strands of yarn that it gets going simultaneously, I would say this is a knit for an experienced knitter. But if you are fearless, and want to learn some new techniques, this is a great sweater for it.




The saddle shoulder sleeves extend down to fingerless mitts- perfect for a skater ;-)








The detailing on this sweater is fun, and makes the knitting go quickly.








This version is extra long, but you wouldn't have to make it that long.
The ribbing on the bottom has extra cabling detail. Very fun!






I am so stoked that I have finally made a sweater long enough for my tall husband!
Now back to socks....
