I just bought 5 skeins of Brown Sheep Burly Spun to knit this up for my husband for Christmas. It should knit up fast, which is key, since I'm already working on a hoodie for myself (the Under the Hoodie from SnB) and have a sweater lined up for my daughter! Need to make one for my son too. Anyway everything I knit dh says "nice but it's not that thick, is it?" So here he goes - the thickest sweater possible!
Just wondering if anyone else has tried this pattern. It looks straightforward enough. My biggest concern is, if his chest is 40", what do I want the finished dimensions of the sweater to be? It is such a thick yarn, I want to be sure there is enough room, but don't want it too big either.
The pattern is from December of Elizabeth Zimmerman's (EZ's) Knitter's Almanac.
