I have just finished knitting this for my husband it's the first jumper i have knit in a long time , It is easy to knit and my husband loves it .

I made this sweater last Christmas in charcoal with black trim for my 12-year-old grandson and it turned out even better than I expected. And, he loved it!

Now this is a sweater the wonderful man in my life is just going to LOVE! And the colors shown are going to be just right for him too. He loves chunky, hand knitted sweaters but nothing too fussy, as he calls it, so this sweater is going to be exactly the perfect birthday gift for him, YAY!
