THE KNITTER'S DUDE
Dude26

The Knitter's Dude takes inspiration from the iconic Big Lebowski sweater, but it's designed with the knitter's enjoyment and inspiration in mind. It's worked entirely in the round so that the stranded color work never has to be worked on the wrong side, and finishing doesn't require any seaming. The fit is relaxed and flattering with raglan yoke shaping, a generous collar, and beautiful tubular cast-on and bound-off edges.

The sample is shown on a woman, but the pattern is unisex - there are instructions for modifying the sweater to be more appropriate for men's/tall sizes, so you can make it work for all the Dudes and Dudettes in your life.

And if you've got a tiny one, The Little Dude comes in sizes newborn to age 12! Get The Royal We, the ebook for both patterns or check out The Little Dude.
