Well. There are knitting patterns and then there are KNITTING patterns. This fantastic little number has a bold cable pattern that remind me of the waves on heart monitors from many lonely hours of watching House reruns!
Both patterns are gender neutral and could easily be adapted for whomever you might like to give it to. They have raglan sleeves and the cardigan has a hood and pockets that many customers request from patterns when they come into the shop. It would also be easily adaptable to add extra length.
