sweater-weather applies to men, too!
Finally few days of perfectly clear weather, so I could have my husband modeling my last fatigue!
This sweater was inspired by Tim Coppens panelled knit pullover. I used a thinner yarn since my husband loves thin sweaters, so this is one of the reasons he doesn't complain [too much] about my knitting machine purchases.

The yarn it's a 2/14 merino / alpaca
Panelled pullover // execution:
The front and back of the sweater are knitted on the main bed up until two rows before the armhole, then I transferred all the stitches on the ribber's needles, and transferred 3 stitches on the main bad every 6 rows to create the ribbed effect.
The reverse stockinette knitted on the ribber worked fine, although it was just for few rows.
NOTE: once the pieces will be finished they will look absolutely WRONG! The ribbed parts will make the pullover ultra skinny and extra long: but fear not! Let the pieces relax for few hours, then give it appropriate wash and blocking and will look just as it should be.
