This is a 1/6 scale version of a traditional Southern Osthrobotnian pattern for men's sweater. The sweater is called "Jussipaita" (Jussi sweater).

The yarn was too thick and I needed to simplify things a lot. The pattern is too large and the collar too high, but otherwise this first version is quite all right.

I'm going to get more suitable yarn and try to make it right in the next version.

The doll is the Finnish mountain climber Veikka Gustafsson. His original outfit was an outdoors outfit with climbing gear and I got really lucky and got him on sale for 4.50 euros.
