While I was in Canberra my younger daughter had a couple of jumpers that she no longer wears and wondered if I would like to re-purpose the wool. As you can no doubt imagine I was delighted with the idea. Very kindly she did the bulk of the frogging of the jumpers as my arm is not quite up to doing that just yet.The first lot of wool was from a wrap I made a few years ago and you can read about it here.
She had already chosen a pattern that she would like made up so it was just a case of getting on to Ravelry and buying the pattern to download.
This is a top down jumper and the first time I have knitted a top down. It is seamless so in a way it is similar to when I knitted the yoke jumper for my elder daughter.
The pattern is Baby cables and Big ones too by Suvi Simola
If you click on the photo above it will take you to the pattern link.The pattern required lots of stitch markers to show where the cable patterns were to be placed.
I have now reached the point where the sleeves are separated from the body.
Now the bulk of the knitting is stocking stitch apart from a cable down the sleeves so it is easy knitting from now on.
