I made an exTREMEly tacky sweater for my husband to wear in the Ugly Christmas sweater contest. He walked away with the blue ribbon.

 

I'm sharing the directions for the sweater base that I embellished, heehee.

Hope you enjoy it. Merry Christmas!:wreath

Hahah, actually, he wanted to enter the contest, but he told me he was only going to do it if he was going to WIN. I said, "I think we can manage that," and then walked off cackling a little bit. :D

That is so cool. He should have been on the Chew, the other day I caught part of it and at the end, they were giving awards for the ugliest Christmas sweater. Maybe he would have a chance for a win.

 

And he is certainly not tacky.

OMG...that's hysterical! The actual body of the sweater looks like a good pattern, though...

He decided that the ratty straw cowboy hat "completed the look," haha!

It is, actually! He was so disappointed that it was so "normal" until I started gluing stuff on. The gauge is very loose so I probably wouldn't make it for a man to wear normally, and there's no shaping for a woman in it, but it's a good basic sweater that could be adapted several ways.
