Daniels Sweater

I started this cotton cabled sweater quite a few months ago, and then set it aside to focus on artwork. Thankfully I have a very patient husband. What could have been a great Soltice or Birthday present is going to be a Father's Day gift. This is a modified version of the Organic Man Pullover published in the winter 07/spring 08 issue of KnitScene. I made Daniel the Organic Man last year in cream, and it quickly became his favorite sweater. He loves big tunic style tops so this is a perfect pattern for him. I have the back and sleeves finsished already, and I CO for front this week. I was a little worried about my gauge and whether or not I'd remember the cable pattern. But it's coming out perfectly.

I designed this version with a Saxon cable down the center of both front and back, with a Seedstitch Wishbone Cable on either side of the Saxon cable and down the center of each sleeve. It's very handsome and compliments the Viking inside my man!!
