“The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” is one of my favourite movies and I wanted to recreate the sweater that the main caracter wears during the movie.

 

The sweater is knit from the top down, in the round, seamlessly. There are short rows to shape the top of the sweater. The body is knit in a textured stitch pattern. The sleeves are where all the action is, with a cross stitch pattern and cables nested between the same texture stitch pattern as the body.

 

 

All stitch patterns are charted and also have written instructions.

 

 

This pattern is more suitable for experienced and adventurous intermediate knitters.
