A Seamless Hybrid for my husband

I just finished knitting a sweater for my husband, using EZ's "Seamless Hybrid" sweater architecture. I had tried to knit him a sweater from a magazine pattern before, and wound up ripping the whole thing out and starting from scratch, doing the math to make sure the sweater fit exactly how he wanted it to. I'm so delighted with how it turned out, and he loves it too (though he looks a bit cold in this picture!):

The sweater has knit-in hems with contrast-color facings, and was knit in the round with a garter stitch column on either side of the steek. It was my first time steeking, but it worked out beautifully!

You can read more about the project here. Happy Knitting!

    I've made three of EZ's sweaters and all my shoulders have been well-funny It's not the pattern its me...of coarse I can see you been a life time knitter as I've been a photographer painter
