I'm not sure, I'll have to look at home but I think it was Red Hearts Christmas yarn. The pattern was in one of the Creative Knitting magazines.
Hopefully I'll be able to find these easier if you request the patterns since they are more recent projects I've done.
My sweater - started the series.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
I really appreciate the compliments. I'll be looking for the pattern for the mutton sleeved sweaters tonight after work. I believe it was another Caron pattern because back then I only used the yarn that the patterns called for. There wasn't much of a choice in the 80's when I knitted them. As for the white cardigan, I think it was in a magazine I bought in the 80's also. I got away from knitting & Crochet for a while and just started up about 2 years ago.
Again, I will start looking tonight and post when I find them.
Thanks for the kind remarks. I will post the argyle pattern tonight when I get home from work for those of you who would like to make one. It's really quite simple if you know how to use the bobbins for the different color yarns.
Thank you all for the wonderful comments. I will have to look through my stash of patterns as these were made almost 30 years ago. If I find them and they're not copywrited, I will post them.

Camilla, Hope you can open it now. If not, I can email it to you.
The pattern is a two pager. You need to scroll down to see the directions. Hope this helps.
The Caron Argyle sweater is another free pattern that I have in my stash. The Men's Sweater is from a booklet I bought from WalMart and the multi colored sweater is from Creative Knitting. The only pattern I can share is the Argyle.
Caron Argyle Sweater
This would make a cute dress
These are a few of the projects I did throughout my years of knitting...
My First Cardigan
Made this for my older daughter when she was 9.
My younger daughter wanted hers in Raspberry.
Mine was a hat that was knitted similar to a scarf but not as long. It only went from ear to ear. Then the ends were sewn to make a point and strings were attached by my neighbor who taught me to knit at age 8.
So glad I could help out. Here's a picture of the one I did way back when.... I didn't fold the collar over and sew it as per the instructions. I left it more as a straight up collar. Unfortunately, the DazzleAire yarn had a tendency to ball up so mine doesn't look as preserved as your husband's. I might make a new one now that I found the pattern again.
You are very welcome! I hope you'll post the picture when you get the new one finished. I love to look at everyones work. Gives me incentive to try new things!
I searched through my stash and found the pattern! It was a free pattern by Dazzleaire. This is the woman's version but I'm sure can be adapted for a man. I made it in the same colors as shown and also did one in black, heather gray, lt gray and white. My teenage daughter took it from me, LOL!
I started reading this forum about two weeks ago and have learned so much from you all. I've been knitting for 40 something years but only did the "easy stuff" till last year when I got the nerve to try some new stitches. I will post some pictures of my latest workings soon. :D
