Tristan’s new favourite sweater August 27, 2014 – Posted in: Project Ideas

t_flax4My 10-year-old son has been hankering after a blue sweater for ages and the Betty Draper’s Blues colourway in Madelinetosh Tosh Vintage fit the bill nicely! We perused Ravelry together and he opted for Flax by Tincanknits – a classic, unisex, top-down pullover with sections of garter stitch on the sleeves which add interest and texture. The style is perfect with jeans and khakis and the fit is relaxed and casual without excess bulk.  I only wish I had made the S instead of the XS because, even though this was a super-quick knit, I don’t think he’ll get more than a year’s worth of wear out of it. That said, the top-down design lends itself well to lengthening the body and sleeves a little as he gains some height.
