Want to knit a sweater before Christmas? There is always still time with this pattern! I can finish one of these in 45 minutes, and the testers also reported times under an hour.

The best part? Just two ends to weave in!

When I decided to start a tradition of knitting a personalized wee soccer sweater for each of the players I coach at Brandon University, I looked for a way to make the process as fast as possible. After weaving in oodles of ends last year I also wanted as little finishing as possible. This pattern is the result of my tinkering this fall as I searched for a way to get the process as simple as possible.
