My men's pullover, inspired by Dutch Fishermen's sweaters was given a bit of a modern tweak with the neckline shaping and set-in sleeves, which are worked top-down in the round for a seamless knit. The pullover is worked in Sugarbush Yarns Crisp DK, a gorgeous 100% merino yarn. You can see the excellent stitch definition in the below photo particularly well.
If you noticed during last year's Gift-a-long that I had drifted away from the forums partway through and had trouble keeping up, it was because I was hard at work on this sweater! I'm very pleased with it, and love the pictures that Harper Point Adventures Photography took for Interweave! They do gorgeous work, and the model is handsome too! The sweater looks great on him, and I should add that the same size of sweater (medium), thanks to the stretchy nature of the rope-and-cable pattern, fits nicely up to a 40" frame as well, where it would still have standard ease of 3" in the chest. The full size range of measurements for the finished sweater around the chest at the underarms is: 40 (43¾, 48¾, 52¼, 56)“. For more construction notes as well as details on sizing, materials, notions, and gauge, check out the Laboratory Pullover's Ravelry page here, where you can add this sweater to your knitting queue!
