Custom Knit Letter Sweater - Fraternity Sweater

Fraternity Sweater. Not just for fraternity brothers, this "fraternity" sweater can be custom designed and hand knitted just for sororities, too! It can be custom designed just for you, in your choice of 49 beautiful colors. What could be more ivy league than a classic sweater like this one, a true hand knit with its traditional stripes on the sleeves, deep double pockets and letter knitted right into the design? Yet, if you look closely, you will see that the Fraternity Sweater has been updated for a more modern and contemporary flair than the traditional ivy league look of the Letter Sweater.

Note the generous extra-long length which is optional on this design. The two pockets are placed lower than usual, while the shape of the v-neck has dramatic extra depth. The Fraternity Sweater has its buttonholes on the left-hand side, the side usually reserved for a man's sweater, to give the appearance of fine menswear. Hemmed at the bottom edge, the Fraternity Sweater is comfortable and easy-to-wear, knitted from pure 100% cotton and built to last for many years. The sleeves have deeply ribbed cuffs, to roll up if you like, or to wear straight. Machine wash/dry.

Shown here in black with pure white and tangerine, a bright and cheerful shade of orange which is the exact color of the fruit tangerine, the Fraternity Sweater is a beautiful sweater, sure to become one of the most-favored pieces in your wardrobe. The design was originally done at the request of a woman who wanted a letterman sweater which looked like a man's sweater, but would fit her properly, not oversized or baggy, sized and shaped to fit a woman's figure.

Absolutely, the Fraternity Sweater is suitable for men as well as for women - the design can easily be adjusted for a man. See below for ordering options. For ladies, there are two choices for length, low-hip length, as shown in the photos, or standard length. For men, the sweater will be standard length.

If you and your partner went to the same school, you might want to order two of these unique hand knitted sweater designs, one for each of you. Now there's an idea for an anniversary gift!

The Fraternity Sweater shown above is knitted in 100% pure cotton, using black for the main color and tangerine and pure white for the colors for the stripes on the sleeves. Unlike the traditional Letter Sweater, the Fraternity Sweater has two pockets and stripes on both sleeves, using stripes in two different colors. The letter "E" shown on this example sweater has a pure white, hand embroidered border around the letter.

Here is my happy customer, sitting at the desk in her office, wearing her new Fraternity Sweater. She was so happy with the sweater that she wrote to me twice during the day. Here's what she said:

"The sweater is PERFECT PERFECT PERFECT!!!!!! It is exactly what I wanted and my husband loves it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It worked out as planned and I pretty much wore it for two days!!!"

And then again, in another email to me, "Susan thank you for making this special piece for me and my husband it was perfect :-) WE LOVE MY SWEATER! JUST THOUGHT YOU SHOULD KNOW!!!! I have gotten so many compliments today, as I am wearing it to work." Kimberly H.

This photo shows the letter "E" with its hand embroidered border, along with the tangerine border at the top of the classic pocket. Note the small square black buttons, a nice designer touch. For a man's sweater, the buttons will be classic round, plain buttons, to match the main color of the sweater.
