My husband's sweater is the Severus Pullover from the Unofficial Harry Potter Knits magazine. I used Ella Rae Worsted. It is 100% wool.
I asked my husband at the beginning of the year, what kind of sweater he would actually wear. I've made two sweaters for him in the past and they never get worn because they're just so ugly.
He requested dark green or navy. I didn't find green yarn I particularly liked so navy it was. He also said he prefers a zip up to pullover, as long as the zipper was metal. I decided to learn steeking for this project and I'm glad I did. It was tough to get the cables lined up perfectly when I sewed the zipper in, and there are still places where it isn't 100% lined up perfectly. So before I wrap things up for Christmas I'll look at it with fresh eyes and decide whether I want to adjust and fix it.

And the last sweater is the Flax, by Tin Can Knits. I finished it on the 25th. The collar turned out a lot looser than the other three, so I'll have to figure out a way to fix it. But for now, it's fine. And he couldn't wait to model it for me!
