I had a sudden desire to make Henry a Christmas sweater, so I decided to combine this sweaterthis sweater, and this sweater. I had a vision of red and ivory and had some leftover ivory pieces from one of my sweater stockings.

I kind of had to piece the back together, but I really like how it turned out.

I used a raglan sleeve pattern, and I added the red leather on the shoulders and a red pocket. I originally made the shoulder pieces a lot bigger, and it made the shoulders stick out. After cutting them smaller, it was the exact look I was going for.

It also has an exposed zipper on one of the front raglan seams.
