It is official! I love, and highly recommend this sweater pattern.
Okay having such a handsome model doesn’t hurt either 😉
I made this sweater over the summer with plans for it to be a Christmas gift. However we made a last minute decision to head south and visit family for the holidays. Which meant that some of the planned Christmas gifts were held over for birthdays. So here is the birthday boy modeling his Silas sweater. Probably won’t be able to wear it long now, but I can always put it in storage for the next little man in line.
Here are the other post related to this project.
First of all, here is the link to this fabulous sweater.
I bought the yarn Cascade 220 Superwash Aran from Jimmy Beans Wool. I am so pleased with the way it knitted up. Soft, yet warm, and durable.
Since I am gifting it to a little boy, it needs to be strong and washable. I opted for plastic buttons, as again this is for a little boy. Thought plastic would hold up better than wood.
Finished product waiting to meet its new owner.
Unfortunately, the photo colors off because of the lighting.
I have been working on the Silas sweater. I have the back finished, and I am currently working on the front piece. Picture below…
I love the way this is knitting up. It is soft, and I love the texture the Ridge pattern adds. Also the sizing seems to be right on so far. I am currently working on the size 6.
