This is a 3Suisse pattern - who have gone out of business. They had great men's patterns. And great pattern books. I have tried to figure out what kind of yarn "Narvik" is/was so I can't find out the general weight to compare to other yarns. I'd love to find more of their patterns, but haven't managed to find anything. Has anyone seen any around?
I did knit this once before about 15 years ago. It came out perfectly with the exception that it was too small. The three sizes in the pattern weren't clear and my tension was just a little tight.
It was the biggest disappointment upon completion since I was sure I'd look just like the pattern model.
I don't usually knit sweaters for myself (because I don't like pullovers) and it's hard to find a great cardigan for men (and not wind up looking like my Dad) so I'm making this again.
I have the back just about done. The pattern looks good and is easy to keep going (I don't think I could ever keep a lace pattern straight).
When it's complete, I'll have to post a picture with me modelling it in the same pose.
