Now I have a challenging project to get my teeth into.

on

On Pinterest there are so many ideas for things to make and do.  My younger daughter found a picture of an Alexander McQueen jumper and thought that I might be able to make it for her as the jumper is no longer available and if it was the cost was excessively high.

I was delighted to be asked to make something similar for her.  We have no pattern so I will be making it by looking at this image and then translating it into the jumper that she wants.  There are a few modifications that she wants me to do so we are going to base the pattern on a cardigan I knitted for my husband many, many years ago.

This pattern will give me a base to work on size.  The front of the jumper will be much the same as the McQueen one and the back will also be similar.

Originally we were going to make the back panel based on one she had seen on Ravelry, called Viking Central Park Hoodie but since our initial discussions we have found another panel that we prefer.

She would also like the cables to continue down into the bands so I will incorporate that into the pattern.

These scribbled notes give you some idea of our thought processes.

There were other pages but this gives you an idea of what we were trying to do. We have come up with a final plan which I will write out neatly.

    Tackling something like this at all is amazing enough, but without a pattern? You leave me speechless.

      I have certainly had some problems that I have had to find solutions for but that makes it a more interesting finished article in the end.
