Lionbrand yarn donated enough Fisherman's Wool for me to make 50 bears today. They took notice of me, and my little bears. In about 2 weeks they'll be promoting me on their website. My little knit teddy bears are going places....I'm happy to be along for the ride. :)

Need help identifying a sweater

Hi guys,

I'm hoping someone can help me with this. I want to make a sweater for my hubby, he likes the ones with the big collar that has the buttons that go down the side onto the shoulder. Has anyone seen any patterns like this or know what this kind of sweater is called?

I think the reason i can't find aything is because i'm not searching for the right thing.

This is my first attempt at a cable and I found I did enjoy making the scarf. It's a reversible pattern with 3 cables on the other side.

Help what size circular needle?

Beginner here...i finally found a skull cap that my husband likes and I am getting ready to knit it for him, but the pattern only says to use 10 US size circular needles - not the length . The cap is 23" in circumference - what length circular needles should I use? I'm thinking 16"??
