Also known as Mr. Sophisticate or Daddy Sophisticate to those who have been requesting it! It’s been a long time coming (like, 2 and a half years), but I’ve finally been able to write, knit, have test knitted, have tech edited, take pictures of and create the patten layout for the adult version of my baby pattern, Baby Sophisticate.  I’m not sure if people are still waiting for it after all this time, but I hope some of you are still excited to see this pattern hit the market!

I’ve designed this pattern so that it can be made for a man or a woman, with optional waist shaping for the women’s pattern and different lengths for certain parts of the sweater depending on whether it’s being knit for a guy or a girl.

The pattern includes sizing for chest measurements of 30, 34, 38, 42, 46, 50, 54, 58, and 62 inches and calls for Knit Picks City Tweed Heavy Weight (mine in Brocade and the men’s sweater in Tabby).  You will need 5, 6, 7, 8, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 11 skeins for the above sizes.

The gauge for the sweater is 15 sts/20 rows to 4 inches in Stockinette on size 8 US needles.  Just like Baby Sophisticate, the sweater is knit from the top down, with a raglan yoke, and the button band and collar are picked up and knit after the body is finished.

That’s Sophie helping me out with my photo shoot.

The pattern is available for 6.50 (USD) as a download in my Ravelry Store or through Paypal.  Just click below!  If you do decide to knit Sophisticate, I always welcome feedback and questions, so please let me know how you like it!
