Sweater Mosaic

I talked one of the dads at Selma’s bus stop into modeling the men’s raglan for me. Then, when I showed the pictures to my brother to get his opinion, he decided he’d like to design a sweater and started sketching (see below).

Nhoj's Sketch

Don’t you think this sort of has a Star-Trek feel to it? (Especially with the matching pants). That’s what you get when you let computer programmer brothers start designing clothes. I told him if he really wanted such a sweater, he’d have to crochet it himself, but he was undeterred, “This designing is fun!” he said, “I can see why you like it so much.”

p.s. John says his drawing is now cc-licensed.

    How cool! How hard is it in crochet to work diagonally like that? In knitting, it would not be impossible but it would be a bit challenging.

    I vote for wearing the Star Trek sweater just with jeans–and ideally modeled by someone as cute as the model dad….

    Maybe I can get it made through a lazyweb request. It would be really cool if someone crocheted a sweater based on this drawing, and I’d love to have a photo, plzkthxby.
