Star Wars Sweater

When my eldest went through his Star Wars obsession, I was just learning to knit... and I used my son's interest as an inspiration to try a challenging project. This sweater was created using a very simple beginner's Yankee Knitter Pattern (#2) for size 12. It utilized 820 yards of worsted weight yarn (Jamieson's 100% shetland wool in Blue Lovat). I replaced the given heart pattern with my own design which I created on knitters graph paper, employing the use of a fun metallic aqua yarn to highlight R2D2's head and the fighter ships.
