Take a look at this design by Todd Gocken! I love it. This is exactly the type of sweater design that I find very attractive, with its sleek lines accented by smart design elements. Check out how the ribbed sleeve runs up the shoulder into the wide neck band, and the offset zippered placket. There are several other closeups of the design elements on Todd’s Ravelry site where he is known as chiknitterguy.
The design hints of a Star Trek uniform to me…which resonates with Todd’s comment that the design builds on “its military heritage, while maintaining a modern, stylish design.”
I also appreciate this excerpt from his Ravelry statement! Todd says “I would like to be a glowing example for the counterpoint to the statement that ‘men who knit are like dogs who are trained to walk on their hind legs: it is so amazing that they can do it at all, that how well it is done is not considered.’ ” I need to find out from him who he is quoting!
Todd has a few other designs on his Ravelry site. He says he has more designs in his head than time to execute them. Let’s hope he will find the time so we can see more of his exciting designs!
