Well not exactly a jumper, but a cropped cardigan. The idea was to do something that would knit up quickly using a thick wool so that I wouldn’t get bored and give up but would give me the confidence to start jumper knitting…

The pattern was from Kim Hargreaves Heartfelt The Dark House Collection, and did knit up pretty quick.

The arms look long but once it is on the whole thing looks more in proportion. (Lady valet seems to have very narrow shoulders…). The pattern had the desired effect as I do now feel more confident. However I did not enjoy the sewing up process which seemed to take forever. So will go on the hunt for some patterns knitted in the round…
