Here are some photos i have taken of the hand knitted jumper. Two sleeves and the back! The back has a pattern that creates a textured tile effect, and the top is formed by working in moss stitch/seed stitch, whichever you want to call it. It looks huge but when put next to a jumper that fits it seems the right size.
Here are the sleeves. The pattern told me to knit in the tile pattern from the garter stitch hem to just over the elbow, but i decided to just stick to stocking stitch and just do a garter strip across the middle. I think it looks okay - i just thought it would be a bit over the top with more of the tile pattern.
Ive just started the front, so no doubt that will take me a few months - wish me luck!
Talk to you later
