View Full Version : A little brag!

As i've told the whole forum throughout every stage (i've had to ask loads of questions) i'm knitting my first adult sized jumper - previously only managed baby jumpers and scarves!

Thanks to everyone's help at answering my (numerous) questions about the pattern i've now finished and sewed all of the body including picking up stitches to knit the floppy neckband! Only the sleeves to go!

Pic to follow when finished. And thanks again to everyone who decoded the pattern for me!

Ha ha - just to serve me right - tried it on just before knitting the sleeves and realised it's about 15cm too short! So now had practise in un-doing the ribbing and adding on some more rows!

One day i'll be good at this......

Could it be the sweater pattern is for belly showing? I mean the younger girls and women are doing that! You keep at it and we are really excited to see it when it is finsihed!
