The FisherMAN Sweater

Here's a first look at the FisherMAN Sweater! It's an easy knit, stockinette with a slip stitch which creates nice vertical lines. The body and sleeves are knit separately in the round to the underarms, then joined all in one piece. This shoulder shaping uses the same technique  that I used in the Urban Twist. It gives the appearance of a sewn in sleeve but they are actually knit on as you go. Pattern will be along shortly.

The bottom photo shows the fisherman in the distance and in the foreground a knitted washcloth finished whilst husband fishes.  Tally: fish = 0, washcloth = 1. Now that's my idea of a blissful morning!
