I might be a bad sister for delivering my brother’s Christmas gift six months late but I think I made up for it by knitting said 6’4″ brother a sweater. Wow, I’m proud of that thing. It’s a seamless hybrid and the instructions can be found in Elizabeth Zimmermann’s Knitting Without Tears. There was plenty of math involved in this one but it fits Bob perfectly — plus I kind of like math. If you’re interested in the super specifics like how many stitches I cast-on, etc. check out the sweater in ravelry. That EZ sure knew what she was doing.
