A mini-blog

Mum was here for lunch one day and flicked through some knitting books and found this pattern. She asked for a slightly adapted version of the main pattern with just a cream body and two contrast colours in different shades of pinks.

This was a pretty quick knit which was a joy to do on 5mm needles! It’s very satisfying seeing the project develop with minimal effort.

The colour work yolk is knit in the round using the fair isle colourwork technique. The jumper has short row shaping at the top of the yolk on the back, which raises the neck line. There is also some shaping around the waist which will help the overall fit of the jumper.

Another fantastic pattern from Tin Can Knits.
