Knitting - Jumpers

#1
It's time to share hobbies. Mine is knitting. i'm currently doing a cross stitch jumper with cross iron 3 needles (purchased from Woolies). The stitch is interwoven with a ply cross, and the wool is a mix of pure and coloured New Zeland mountain sheep. The pattern is:

MEASUREMENTS:

To fit bust: in30 (32:34:36:38:40)
Actual measurement: in32 (34-1/2:37-1/2:40-1/2:43-1/2:46)
Full length: in19 (19-1/2:20:20-1/2:21:21-1/2)

Sleeve length: in4-1/2 (4-1/2 4-1/2:4-1/2:4-1/2:4-1/2)

TENSION: 22 sts and 30 rows to in4 over Pattern on size 8
needles.
MATERIALS: Double Knitting G100 3
(3:3:4:4:4)
Knitting Needles: UK size 8 & UK size 10
Stitch Holders; 3 Buttons

ABBREVIATIONS

ssk: Sl2 sts knitways one at a time then insert left-hand
needle into fronts of these 2 sts from the left and knit them
together.

PATTERN:
1st Row: K1, * k1, k2together, yfwd, k1, yfwd, ssk, k2; rep from
* to end.
2nd and every alt Row: Purl.
3rd Row: K1, * k2together, yfwd, k3, yfwd, ssk, k1; rep from *
to end.
5th Row: K2together, * yfwd, k5, yfwd, s1, k2together, psso; rep
from * end last rep ssk.
7th Row: K1, * yfwd, ssk, k3, k2together, yfwd, k1; rep from *
to end.
9th Row: K1, * k1, yfwd, ssk, k1, k2together, yfwd, k2; rep from
* to end.
11th Row: K1, * k2, yfwd, s1, k2together, psso, yfwd, k3; rep
from * to end.
12th Row: Purl.

Rep these 12 rows.

The results are excellent when applying the cross handed double method. Anyone else like to knit?

You sad, sad, man. I would say you should get out more, but perhaps you had better not. You could be very, very dangerous.

WOW, I actually do basket weaving on a Sunday afternoon !! I didn't want anyone to know, so I always say I'm going out for a beer on a Sunday cos I thought it sounded a bit poofish being a basket case weaver !! Have you attempted the Mongolian Circle basket Blacky?

The Ulan Bator Basket Weaving and Stella Quaffing courses are quite good to get the real feel for the Mongolian Circle basket.

Held every second Thursday night at 7.30 in the Red Yak 17 Gur St Ulan Bator Mongolia. Please bring your own basket making necessities. Stella (or curdled horse milk if you are driving) is provided.
