A few months ago this jumper was in my copy of The Knitter
A Sarah Hatton pattern knit in the round with chunky weight. The recommended yarn is Rowan Purelife Renew but it was a pretty similar colour to the Sirdar Yarn in my stash so I thought I'd go with that. I thought that back when I got the magazine in winter, it only took me until August to actually cast on!
It's top down and I'm just ready to seperate the sleeves from the body now. So far it has been easy, the cable pattern is easy to follow and it knits up quickly being chunky yarn on 6.5mm needles (the pattern calls for 6mm but I knit tightly and no amount of relaxing or changing my knitting style has helped that so I've accepted it) I've not had a great deal of knitting time but still it seems to be growing which is excellent, just what I like in a pattern!
The first picture gives you a better look at the cable pattern but the second is more accurate for colour.
So far I'm enjoying it and am hoping it shouldn't take too long as long as I you know...work on it, apparently projects don't miraculously knit themselves, who knew?!
I'll have FOs in my next post, exciting stuff!
