I love the jumper! Is it a published pattern or one of your own design? I especially like the neckline and the hem on the sleeves. Great job!

Paul, that's beautifully done!
...on those tiny needles must have taken forever!

It's funny how I almost get offended when people say this, but I mean it in the best sense...it looks like you could buy it at the store, being so well-executed and so stylish and so well fit. Gosh. That'll be the day, when I knit a sweater that looks that great! Kudos!

Wow...I love the look of the fit. What size yarn and needles did you use? I would like to see more men's patterns in fingering and sport weight yarn, but since people prefer quicker knits, you don't see them often.

That looks amazing!! The color is great and the neckline / collar is fantastic!!! I want to make it!

Boys - thanks so much *blush* yes 4ply on 3.25mm needles was a big call for a man who is 6'5". But worth it as the weight is perfect for our climate.

Based on the Erika Knight Classic V neck in "Classic mens knits" but I altered it significantly.

All the boring details are in my ravelry projects (same username) - but in short, knitted hems instead of ribbing. knitted in the round and started much smaller around the waist and increased up as I went along.

Making a few baby things now to recover from the BIG job :)

Thanks again - you made my day

Rod's jumper looks great Paul, I much prefer those knitted hems to ribbing. You've done a great job. That Beluga is a great colour, I was looking at it in Morris & Sons last week.

Thanks kerry

Really apreciate the comment - yes - think I am going to do something in this colour again - maybe 8ply for me this time.
I have to avoid walking into Morris - I always buy something! gulp!

Looks awesome! I always struggle to find a sweater that fits that well, you'll have to share the secret of your increases!

Paul, it looks incredible!!! I like the slim fit. I'm finishing up a cardigan right now in a similar weight, so I know exactly how much time goes into it, but well worth the time. Your execution was awesome!

Only knitters would understand & appreciate how much work went into that seemingly "simple" sweater. Very well done!!!!
