PurPle Laines

I’m adding this project here though I only made the collar (my mum knitted the jumper) but I thought my notes might be helpful:

  • my mum is a tight knitter, she had to make it on 5.5 mm needles instead of 3.5mm.
  • the jumper is too wide and too long in my opinion. If we knitted again, we would cast on 30 st less per side and work 2” less also
  • apart from this, its very comfortable, light and warm. I love it!

J’ajoute ce projet ici bien que je n’ai tricoté moi-même que le col (ma maman a tricoté le pull) mais je pense que mes notes pourraient servir:

  • ma mère, qui tricot plutôt serré, a dû le faire en 5.5mm au lieu de 3.5mm comme indiqué
  • le pull est trop large au final alors que l’échantillon était bon. Si nous devions le refaire, nous monterions 30 m de moins par côté et 5 cm de moins en hauteur.
  • ceci étant dit, je l’adore! Il est très comfortable, léger et chaud.
