Soren’s Old Man Sweater~ 2014

soren1Our new buddy Soren was born last October, so of course I had to make him a sweater!

Yarn is a Dk weight superwash merino that I dyed years ago, leftovers from a sweater I made myself (that I have yet to blog about).
It’s a purplish grey.

The pattern is Henry’s Sweater (Ravelry Link) by Sara Elizabeth Kellner.

Buttons are vintage from my gram’s button tin. Well, from one of her button tins.

The  changes I made were to tack down the collar, and
I make an icord edge along the inside front vertical edge so it did not curl.

I also made a ribbed cuff so there was room for growth.

But not enough growth, because this adorable little meatball (what his ma and pa call him) grew out of it fast.
