Pattern Details

Colum is a great 'guy' sweater, with just enough detail to keep it interesting to knit, but not so fancy that he won't wear it. Sized from teen to adult, Colum can be made as a close-fitting or loose sweater, and the classic styling makes it a good gift for any deserving male. Worked in 2x2 rib on 7 (4.5mm) needles and using aran-weight yarn, the sweater grows quickly, and the rib stitch creates plenty of elasticity, which will result in a good fit. Two inches of negative ease are included in each size (for example, the finished 38" sweater actually measures 36" across the chest). Size up or down for the look you want. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Knit, purl, k2tog and ssk decreases, picking up stitches for neckband GAUGE 16 stitches and 24 rows = 4 inches in stocking/stockinette stitch PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Patons North America Classic Wool Worsted

I am one of those people who learnt to knit and crochet when they were children - I think I was seven years old when I got started, and I learnt the basics from my Mum, and then everything else from books. I juggle crafting with a full time job and raising three children, and now as the children have got older, I've got more time to knit and crochet. Designing simply grew out of wanting to make something that I couldn't find a pattern for. Now I design garments for men and women in knit and crochet - there are a few accessories in there too. In my designs I like to create wearable, body-flattering and fashionable pieces that fit well and look good. I like functional designs that are interesting and satisfying to make and to wear.
