Now I know that all the card makers out there will relate to this little tale. This pale blue jumper started life as just that, a plain blue jumper. Half way up the second sleeve I ran out of yarn and, much to my surprize, I did not have a second ball in my stash. I was so sure I had another ball!
So like any good card maker I started improvising. First, I unpicked both sleeves and used some white yarn to make them striped. However, I then became concerned that the jumper would look exactly like what it was - a fudge job. So next I unpicked some of the front and put a star shape on the chest. I am hoping that it now looks like that is exactly what I intended to do from the start - do you think I pulled it off?
The plain jumper pattern is the easy to knit - BHKC pattern number 3. I love this pattern, both the cardigans and jumpers are so quick and easy to make.
