Birthday sweater

Just finished a sweater for my brother's birthday coming up in June. Not only will he not wear it anytime soon, it's a long shot he'll wear it at all since we live in Arizona. Anyway, thought I'd share.

Beautifully done! Wonderfully executed! Even in Arizona, it does get cool sometimes. He'll wear it.

Is this from a pattern somewhere? Nice design, simple, clean, still stylish.

That's a great looking sweater. I am looking for a pattern that uses chunky or super chunky yarn so I can wear it without a coat while hiking in winter and cool fall and spring days too. Is there a name to the pattern?

That is very nice. I hope he enjoys it.

Thanks everyone. The pattern is called Crossroads Pullover by Hélène Rush. I knit this up in Lion Brand's Fisherman's Wool.

I especially like the approach. You start at the bottom of one sleeve, knit up the sleeve, across the front/back in the round, and then down the other sleeve. Then, you pick up stitches along the bottom edge to knit down the front/back in the round.

Flagstaff in January or even better the Grand Canyon at Christmas! Great sweater, I may have to find the pattern and add it to my queue.

Nice sweater. I'm just a beginner but my goal is to learn to make sweaters and hats. I've just moved to Phoenix a couple of weeks ago. Are there any men's knitting groups in this area? I'm in the NorthWest Valley section. Thanks
