Jumper and Cardigan
After making two cardigans and a sweater from scrap yarns I asked my two daughters if they would they like me to knit them a woollen. Fiona said yes please either an off the shoulder cream chunky or a black Chenille and Michelle said yes too and chose blue colour. It was an easy choice as I found this pattern ideal! a cream chunky off the shoulder, quick to knit on 12mm needles. Then I found a stripy cardigan pattern using blue throughout with a moss stitch ribbing.
I have made the back and fronts of the cardigan, still have the rib around neck and fronts which I hope will knit up nice and neat, and the sleeves.
And the back and front, both alike, of the jumper and sleeve.
I knitted this cream jumper with two strands of chunky knit and thought that would be thick enough but I think it could do with a thicker yarn and may have to start again. I dont really mind as it is very quick to knit.
