This is the first time I've made a yoked scandanavian-style jumper.
I've got my eye on the cardigan on the cover of this quarter's issue! I knitted the second size which is quite roomy (I have a loose tension!). I reduced the sleeve length by an inch and they are still a bit too long!
The body has a little lace repeated pattern.
The sleeve was supposed to have this pattern too, but I just couldn't be bothered to try and work out the pattern among the increases on the sleeves, so I knitted them in straight stocking stitch. The yoke is easy to knit. I just changed the colour choices. The wool is Navia Trio, Faroese Shetland wool. I bought it from Island Wool, the colours seem to have changed and the pink, maroon and mustard don't seem to be available any more. I was worried that it might be itchy, but it isn't at all, it really is very comfortable for a 100% Shetland wool.
I'm wearing the jumper with another Collete Mabel (number 7!). This time version 1, though I lengthened it by 3 inches (too old for a proper mini I'm afraid). This was some pretty cheap and grotty ponte roma (really I'm trying to find some plaid ponte but this was the nearest in a dogtooth). It's a reasonable fit and I like it with thick tights and chunky ankle boots.
Just in case you have noticed I only blogged a jumper three weeks ago, no I'm not a superfast knitter I've just let my knitting pile up a bit waiting to be blocked, and so they seem to be appearing thick and fast.
I'm rather glad February is almost over, it is a difficult month for me, and the weather is so gloomy at the moment, an excuse to get in a lot of sewing! I'm in the middle of the Cascade duffle-coat sewalong; I've just cut out the Walkaway dress and a Linden sweatshirt, so I'm a busy girl. Roll on next weekend!
