So of course Marshall needed this to be his Halloween costume. And of course I only had the idea for this the Monday before Halloween. So with 5 knitting days, I was off to the races.
I used the Strange Brew Pattern/Book by Tin Can Knits, and an assortment of Cascade 220 esque worsted weight yarn from my stash. I knit cuffs, hems and collars on 3.5 mm needles and the body of the sweater on 4mm needles. I knit bottom up and followed the 6-12 month size for DK weight instructions. After joining the body and sleeves I had 160 stiches on the needle.
The yoke was knit with 10 repeats of the following chart. In the star section I had 14 stars and rotated through the 4 star charts.
Feel free to use these charts. You'll have to do your own math and alterations to knit this sweater to any other size. I have no intentions on grading this pattern/chart to any other sizes as it would be inappropriate for me to sell the pattern with the original design of the show sweater being by Neil Barrett who I believe designed several of David's sweaters.
You can watch my YouTube video documenting my process, and showing the details of how I steaked open the neck to fit over Marshall's rather large head.
All in all, I was very very pleased with how this project turned out. And Marshall couldn't be any happier (or cuter).
