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 🙂 – 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 from Eleonora’s crochet-along Coastal blanket stash buster 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 👋 for now 🌹🌻🌼❤🐤🐕🐶
