Remember this cheerful face? I started the sweater last December for a February birthday. That grandson moved to Hawaii where I seriously doubted he'd need such a sweater. It got put on hold till the October birthday of another grandson. When I dug Jolly Roger out of hiding, the front was finished and about three inches on the back. Working on it all day added about nine more inches of the total 20 I need. Then the sleeves. I'm just trying to decide if I want to do the sleeves flat or in the round, one at a time or two at a time....I'm using the Weasley Sweater as my basic pattern. I've made it before and it's a nice simple, big sweater. The inspiration and Roger's head comes from the Piraten-Pulli pattern. (Ravelry link.)
