Sweater Swatched

One of my xmas gift plans for this year is to knit a sweater for my dad. I selected the Single Malt pattern by Maxim Cyr, and began swatching for it over the weekend. The swatch turned out well, although my gauge is a bit tight. Since I like this fabric, my plan is to knit a slightly larger size. I did the math and it should still work out to the correct amount of ease. And since it is a gift, I’d rather err on the side of it being slightly too big so at least it can still be worn.

This is my first time knitting a sweater for somebody who isn’t me, so it will be a bit of an adventure. I am constantly trying things on to make sure they are right, and I can’t do that with a gift knit for somebody else. Wish me luck!
