Once you establish the ribbing pattern in the first few rows, it is easy to keep building upon it as it becomes very clear when you are supposed to knit or purl. I was so relieved when we took final photos and handed in the project to Lion Brand Yarn!
Best wishes Julia Julia. Oh by the way I love my sweater that I have received I will do sweater shopping with you again!!! Thanks so so much Helen, arrived thursday morning and so am travelling in it today for my holiday — I just love it xx ps thanks also for the credit note there really was no need — but good excuse to shop again when I get back!! Hi Helen Just to say I received the parcel today. Many thanks for your help, once again. Kind regards Jane x Jane.
Thank you very much. Fantastic Jumpers Hi I just wanted to let you know that within a week of ordering my first jumper I had ordered a second. Everyone and I mean everyone comments on them — they are better in real life than I ever imagined. Thanks very much Sara x Sara. Dear Helen, Thank you, I am truly delighted with my order. What a beautiful jacket. I am considering buying the Lydia jacket in cardinal red, XL. Can you please send me a swatch of the colour? Pictured below is a mattress seam in progress.
When the yarn is tightened, it will create an invisible seam. There are a few ways that you may choose to attach the sleeves. The simplest seam is a whip stitch, but this will be quite visible. There are ways to make it virtually invisible if you search online for how to attach selvege edge to cast off edge.
I do find these create bulk with our chunky yarn. I hope you enjoyed making this easy knit pullover! You will never be cold again.
What do you think of this sweater? If you crochet, you might want to check out this super easy tutorial and pattern for a crocheted knit-like sweater pullover here! Thank you so much to Lion Brand Yarn for sponsoring this post. Can you make this sweater using only 1 strand of yarn to make it less heavy? I think that would be beautiful! You may need to play around with the gauge a bit. So glad you like it. Is this pattern unisex?
I would like to possibly make for Boyfriend but I am worried about it not fitting. Do you think its possible to make this with a cowl like neck by picking up stitches once its all seamed together? Or would you do it some other way? Hi, this looks a lovely jumper and would be great for chilly winters in the UK. I am a total beginner only having knitted very simple scarves etc.
When you say circular needles, can you use straight ones in the sizes you have given? The only issue with straight ones is that it might not be possible to hold all of the stitches on one needle. Years ago I knitted a sweater, this looks like a similar pattern. Thank you for sharing it. I might work on another soon. As for seaming, would slip stitch crocheting the seams work as well, vs. Hi Bailey, The seaming is the most difficult part of this sweater as it can become very bulky.
Complete knitting newbie here.. What is the difference? Yes, you can use any comparable chunky yarn and I think the chunky Hometown would be a good option. If Hometown or Wool-Ease is used, would you still need to use 2 skeins at once? This looks great — exactly what I am looking for as we head into winter down here in Australia. It turned out great, and as promised was very simple! I just needed to adjust the number of stitches in the body by 4 based on the swatch guage, but given the detailed instructions, felt confident the whole way.
