Show us Your F14's (and headless guys)!

June's almost at its close, so it's time to show off your FPOM, the Fundamental Men's Top-Down Cardigan!

I see I'm not the only one with a guy who refuses to have his head photographed, even when happy with his new hand-knit sweater!

I have included links below to each knitter's Ravelry page for you to see more lovely pictures and details.

First up is catlover's "Osprey Cardigan" made with Mountain Colors 4/8s wool in the Osprey colorway. I'll just bet this is a comfy, soft sweater for our first headless guy.

Then there's knitgirl389's cardigan made for her husband in Knit Picks Swish DK in a beautiful garnet heather. So classic! But still headless...sigh.

Next is this lovely cardigan knit by amberlindemann in Leading Men Fiber Arts Box Office in turkey run and edged with auburn. What great yarn choices! Wheres the head?

Hey, guys, just why? Why can't we see your smiling faces? There's no way you could look anything but handsome in these beautiful cardigans. 

See?

See how handsome this guy looks in his hand-knit cardigan? Be like this guy!
His cardigan was also knit by amberlindemann, but this one was made with Mrs. Crosby's Steamer Trunk in Smoky Granite. I can attest to the wonder of this yarn because I have made a whole sweater with it myself. Gorgeous colorway here!

These were some of the very few husbands, sons, friends, uncles, cousins, or grandpas who would even consent to being photographed wearing their cardigans, and only one allowed his head!

What are we to do? I'll be on the lookout for more great FO pics of the F14--especially with heads in full view. Until then, let's applaud these knitters!

And remember, you have until midnight tomorrow night to receive 30% off this pattern. July 1 there will be a new one and I'll be back soon to crow about that. Cheers!
