Today I cast off the final stitch on Lily’s first christmas jumper! I’ve ordered some Soak detergent from Amazon – the reviews online said it’s ideal for hand washing yarn knits.
The pattern was from one the love knit magazine christmas issues.
Changes I made
- Rather than knitting areas seperately and sewing together, I picked up stitches for the sleeves, collar and white bottom border.
- I knitted the sleeves short
- The yarn used was snowflake DK rather than the standard DK (stash knit -win!)
- I added white borders to all edges to finish off the garment
When the Soak dergent arrives tomorrow I’m going to wash and block it. Then I’ll add a button and a button loop out of some cotton yarn.
Hope you all have a lovely christmas
Love to you all and happy knitting!
