men's pullover 5 - errol flynn

 

 
 

man_sweater_errol_flynn


While walking on Madison Avenue I spotted this great looking man's sweater in a boutique. It was knit in bulky cashmere and it cost just under $1500 a few years ago. I did not want to go in because the boutique had a doorman and he would have noticed how many times I had to visit the shop to count stitches.
Instead I kept going back as long as it was in the window. Instead of cashmere I made it in Baby Alpaca dk doubled. It really is a magnificent dropped shoulder, turtle-neck pullover.

SIZES:
Finished Measurements in Inches
  small medium large x - large
CHEST 42 48.5 53 59.5
LENGTH FROM SHOULDER 25 26 26.5 27.5
SLEEVE LENGTH FROM DROP 21 21 20,5 20.25
NOTE: the reason the sleeve length, on a drop shoulder sweater, might be shorter on a larger size sweater than on a smaller size sweater is because:
       • the actual body measurements for shoulders and arm lengths do not vary          as much between sizes as chest measurements do
       • the body of the larger size is wider
       • because the sweater is wider for the larger size it drops over the          shoulder more than the smaller size and further onto the arm
 Therefore less sleeve length is needed to cover the arm.
