Another finished item :)

I started this jumper last Tuesday evening and would have finished it by Friday but we had the most wonderful of interruptions – grandchildren, daughter and son in law πŸ™‚ – for three days.

This jumper is for my granddaughter who turned seven last year. The sleeve colours are her choice. I made the pattern (as in the shape) up as I went along. Do you recognise the colourful pattern? Yes, it’s fromΒ Eleonora’s crochet-along Coastal blanket stash busterΒ  After I had finished last week’s rows I got to thinking about how it might look as the back and front of a jumper.

I mostly used Stylecraft Special dk which isn’t a yarn I would usually use for a garment, but I am stashbusting. I left the neck plain as I thought a picot edge could be annoying. I adding a bit of picot to the sleeve edges and a crocheted pompom edge to the bottom of the garment.

I had hoped to finish it while they were here but I was too tired in the evenings. I think Lovely Miss will be pleased.

I now need to crochet the latest rows on my blankets. Bye πŸ‘‹ for now πŸŒΉπŸŒ»πŸŒΌβ€πŸ€πŸ•πŸΆ

  2. So cute. Anyone would love such a lovely sweater. Little girl or big girl. I do recognize your new stitches – using them again will help to remember them.

    Great stash busting project.

    1. Thank you Kat ❀ She takes after her mummy and grandmother with her love of colour πŸ™‚ She hasn’t seen it since I completed the jumper. I’m looking forward to traveling up to Bristol so I can give it to her and a second one I’ve just started for her brother.
