Details...I want details!

Details...I want details! The friend's name, relationship status and how does he like his meals served, what bars does he go to???!!!!

Oh, silly me...is that entrelac? What kind of fiber is that? The shawl collar looks great...did you have to add short rows in the back to get it to stand so well around the neck? Is that a custom design or did you choose a pattern? Any major modifications to the pattern? Would you do it differently now that it's finished?

Damn civilization rules...cheeesch!

he lives in berlin curently

he lives in berlin curently ;-) and he likes sushi
i found a sample of the kind of interweaved pattern in a book, so i started making a design with it... it looks like it is what you call entrelac yes... just picked the stitches n the side sup twisted, so it got more tight then what i found in the description.. the big collar i added because he wanted a big collar, it is actually double folded piece of knitwork, that's why it stands up.... but i think i also did some short rows to make it curvy, dont remember...
i would do some small things different, in the finishing, the overall pattern is great on him i think...
the yarn is bingo of lana grossa, i like to knit with it...

Very handsome...your work, I mean. Yeah, uh, right! What is the pattern called, and/or who is the designer? It looks great.
