Mr. Greenjeans Is Not

Green that is.  No, she is not.  Perhaps she is Ms. Greenjeans.  With all respect to Amy Swenson, what came off my needles is definitely feminine.


Mr. Greenjeans by Amy Swenson which can be had on Ravelry or Knitty.

Yarn:  Berroco Vintage which is a hard working 50% acrylic pleasingly functional due to 40% Wool and 10% nylon.  A good workhorse of a yarn.

This was a very quick knit.  The cable rib pattern cinches in the waist - so be aware!.  If you prefer a looser look perhaps a longer stockinette body section and shorter ribbed section will be more to your liking.

The sleeves end with the same cable rib.  The pattern suggests only 3.5 inches of ribbing on the sleeves, but I did the same number of cable repeats as the body of the sweater.  The sleeves, while you can't see in the photo, stay up when pushed upwards and are slim down the lower arm.  No flopping!  

All in all a good use of a few weeks.  I started this one near the end of December.    What with all of the football games, this entire sweater has been a three week journey.   Nice.   Very nice.
