I've been told perfection is boring. Well, I'm certainly not boring (just ask my friends) and I'm definitely not perfect (just ask my kids)! Because of this I have a standing policy of rewarding people who nicely bring an error to my attention with a free single pattern download from my Ravelry pattern store.

As I was completing the Rime’s the Reason jacket design (See Knitty, Winter 2012), I realized I had all the components present for a men’s pullover—interesting construction; a striking, gender-neutral stitch pattern; and perhaps most importantly I was still in the creative zone and had not yet forgotten the calculations and general stitch-witchery needed to work out the sizing. Further motivation—I had the yarn for a sweater for my hubby and the holidays were staring me in the face.

And so, voila—the Not so Frosty men’s, crewneck pullover was born.

This is an addendum to the jacket pattern at Knitty.com where all definitions, stitch patterns and notes can be found.
