the sledding sweater


I imagine this is the type of sweater a boy wears to go sledding, build snowmen...something rustic, playful and outdoors.
It is the type of sweater when a boy grows up he may wear around a ski lodge.
It is classic- vintage yet modern.

And, to think at one point while knitting it I wasn't sure I would even like it.
It is knit in pure wool by Plymouth Yarns which was made softer through blocking.

Pattern: Knit and Tonic- Drive Thru
Size 4
Yarn: Plymouth Galway Worsted and Plymouth Galway Worsted Highland
Needles Size 7 and 8 Circulars 24"and Size 7 and 8 DPN's
