It's Tim's birthday month, and I've promised him a bunch of hand-made gifts... here's the first one out of the gate!
The colorway I chose is Forest (there's also a charcoal grey and a salt-and-pepper) which is a pretty olive-y green achieved by a combination of green and black threads. One side of this double knit is more green, the other more black. I chose the more green side to be the right side.
I made the shawl collar pullover view in size large, same as last time.
Like last time I sewed this pattern, that shawl collar was a little bit tricky to sew- so many layers! But we got there. Not the crispest corners, but it'll do.
On my last version I found the sleeves too wide at the wrist and didn't like how they had to be almost gathered into the cuff, so I narrowed them towards the wrist for this version.
I used a scrap of flannel left over from my Tarawi shirt for the back neck facing, and added a couple fun labels - my personalized labels from Dutch Label Co and the "Always Sweaty" labels from Inside Voices Labels.
He seemed to be liking it! He layered it over the plaid McCall's 6044 I made him a few years back and wore it to work. He said he got compliments on it already!
