Knitting · My Finished Objects (F.O)

Finished knit – Christmas Jumper

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!
