Still in lock-down, I’m letting other people participate in the “Great Experiment” of whether it is time to emerge. I’m watching out for a second wave and won’t even consider venturing out until there is greater certainty and empirical evidence that it is safe to do so. Meanwhile, I’m having a great time in an extended retreat.
I found a second unfinished baby jumper begun years ago by my daughter. I love the texture created by this simple stitch. I’ve used the stitch a number of times, adapting it from this pattern but this is the first time I have knitted the original pattern.
It comes from Sirdar Book 337 “Little Speckled Chicks” and is the cover project, Design F, page 22, in size 1-2 years. I used Heirloom Dazzle 8 ply acrylic in colour 260 white for the body and Premium Marvel 8 ply acrylic in colour 2004 autumnal multicolours for the ribbing and collar border.
As always it is not complete without the matching beanie and coat hanger. I’m thinking of making a teddy bear with the yarn remnants.
