Eek here it is, my first knitted jumper! Alright, I know you’re thinking ‘that’s barely a jumper, where are the sleeves?!' So it’s really more of a knitted shrug, but it’s still my first proper knitted garment.
Just in case you recognise parts of it, I should mention that I started this project in 2012 and finished it last year, but when wearing it recently I realised I hadn’t blogged it’s finished beauty. And seeing as spring is finally here (at least it was when these photos were taken) I figured now was the perfect time to share it with you.
It's a Sirdar 'Roman Holiday' pattern (9426) in Sirdar simply recycled wool; you can see a picture of the pattern here. Even for something this small, I found it required a lot of dedication and did get a bit bored around halfway through, particularly when I couldn't work out how the pattern would come together, but I'm very glad I persevered and am definitely keen to start a 'proper' jumper now.
Would love any pattern recommendations for a simple beginners jumper or cardigan?
