FO: First ever jumper
2 Attachment(s)
I recently completed my first jumper. I was extremely nervous about sewing it together but with watching lots of videos and reading previous posts helped an enormous amount. I am really pleased with the finished result and it is so comfy and warm.

The pattern is a Bendigo Woollen Mills pattern (PT 8153) and was knitted with Bendigo Woollen Mills Classic wool (8ply 100% wool). The colour is Blueberry.

Your first one? Can't tell by looking! That is one awesome sweater! It's beautiful and I really love the color.

What method did you use for seaming? Inquiring minds want to know. :teehee:

Hi GG, on the shoulders I did 'shoulder seam' as per Garnstudios video and mattress stitch on sleeves and sides. Not as difficult as I imagined it would be.
