Smiley Sweater pattern for Les Beaux 4h – Fondation Martin Matte

This men’s sweater pattern was created specifically for the Martin-Matte Foundation as part of Les Beaux 4 Heures, a ski marathon aimed at raising funds to help victims of head trauma.

The Martin-Matte Foundation asked Biscotte Yarns to create and knit a custom-made pattern to promote this event and it is with great pleasure that we took up the challenge.

I designed the pattern voluntarily and sweater worn by Martin and Fabien was knitted voluntarily by my mother Lisette; yarn to knit both sweaters was donated by Biscotte Yarns which is proud to offer this sweater pattern free of charge HERE and invite you to give generously on Les Beaux 4h website.
