FO: Cobblestone!!!

Yay, it's finally done. Well, it hasn't been that long for me, only about 3 weeks. Is that fast for a sweater? For me it is, but I worked on it pretty faithfully so I could get it done while it was still cold outside (I'm pretending winter's almost over, wanna pretend with me?)

Pattern: Cobblestone by Jared Flood

Yarn: Kraemer Yarn's Tatamy Tweed Worsted in Burgundy (a little over 6 skeins)

Needles: US size 7

Size: Smallest in pattern (39 1/2" chest)

I really love this sweater and am stunned at how well it fits. Hmmm, if a sweater designed to be for a man fits me really well does that mean I have a manish body? I made the smallest size and the only change I made was to cast on fewer stitches for the sleeves, they would have been crazy wide.

One last picture!

P.S. Happy V-Day everyone!!!!

What a great color for you! The sweater looks awesome, and not at all manish.

This is a terrific job & I really love this sweater. I've been eyeing it myself thinking it was very unisex in design. So no - not mannish at all! Beautiful.
