Hey guys :)
Thought i'd do a quick post on the jumper i have been working on since the summer, which i have finally finished!
It was one of those stop-start projects that took forever to complete, but i must say it was a very hard pattern to follow.
The pattern is called 'Candy' from Rowan's Studio 19 brochure. I would definatley recommend this brochure, the patterns are hard to follow but once you have mastered one, the rest become much easier to understand. It has 8 beautiful patterns, very girly tops i must say, but there is quite a few colours to choose from in the Kidsilk Haze yarns so you can give them a bit of an edge through colour choice. You can buy Rowan products at large John Lewis stores.
I used shade 580 which is a baby pink becuase i wanted a 'Candyfloss' effect.
I will be knitting the 'Soda' sailor top next in black and cream stripes, which i will sell as part of Dollied's S/S 11, which i am very excited for starting!
Just a warning, the Kidslick Haze yarn costs £7.95 for a 25g ball, and you will need at least 3 balls, so it does cost a lot in the end, but i assure you it will be worth the money and time. You will have a beautiful garment that you will have put so much love and time into, the satisfaction you get from the end result is wonderful! So give it a go!
