Blues jumper

This jumper was inspired by a Brother pattern, and done using holding position and a knitleader, because as you can see the wools are DK weight knops and poodles/boucles. I love the knitleader, it's so useful for knitting something you like the style of in a different yarn :)

The piping was done by returning all needles to upper working position, and working six rows in a "yarn" made from three different strands of 3 ply, then picking up the first row.

current mood: happy

It was a pattern out of Brother fashion knitting vol 7 - it's based on the one on the front cover.

I would definitely get a knitleader - it's so useful, it allows you to use a different yarn for a pattern - hey, I *never* use the right yarn! A lot of these patterns are 20 years old and you can't *get* the yarn!
