Yoke Sweater for Alex

I got the boy to model the sweater I knitted for him...not to his neglect but we had rain for three days.

    The pattern and the yarn are Bernat...I really like the denim style yarn it is very soft and easy to work with.

The pattern was a little difficult to read.  Kind of skipped a few steps...but I figured it out.  It was also written different than what the photo showed. I had to use four balls of blue instead of three  But it fit well, and I will be making one for my doughtier in Red.  Hers I will make a size larger, though his is a perfect will not fit him next year.

I am not selling anything...but if you want to make one go to and the sweater is called Yoke Sweater.
