Jared Flood’s Cobblestone Sweater had instantly caught my eye when it first appeared in Interweave Knits magazine’s Fall 2007 issue. It is such a clean design but still offers some interest. And of course I’m a sucker for tweedy yarns, so I fell right for this one 😉 But unfortunately I neither found the yarn nor the time to make this sweater in a adult size. Having a baby boy in the house now rekindled my interest in those clean, non frilly designs again and I got busy with planning this cute little project.
To make a pint sized Cobblestone Sweater for little Mr. T I consulted clever old Lady Zimmermann and threw Brooklytweed’s pattern together with EZ’s percentage system. I think the sleeves maybe a tad too tight. And I fudged a bit with the yoke decreases but in the end this sweater turned out quite beautiful. Washing transformed the slightly rough and still lanolin rich fabric into a soft, cozy cloud of sheep goodness. It was a joy to knit and the little guy gets compliments left and right wherever he turns up in his wonderful new sweater 🙂
