Despite casting on bust number, hoping for a looser fit, it is still a pretty tight-fitted jumper… Having said that, I am five months’ pregnant so maybe this will be better for next winter!! Pleased - just need to track down buttons…


4 Oct: Ribbed one less round for the neckline and finished with JSSBO. Sleeves are LONG and lovely - though the underarm finish is a bit of a pigs’ dinner.

28 Sept: on to the OWLS! Have provisionally cast on four row-long sleeves, joined in the round and started the yoke as I’m not sure about yarn amounts…

12 Sept: Cast on bottom, ribbed and did four lots of back waist increases…. Did not like the tight-fitting that was being created so frogged the lot and have cast on for the final bust figure - ie 132 (66 front and back x 2) and will rib and stocking stitch until I’ve reached the measurement before the arms and the owls…

Looser fit intended but I think that will be better with such a thick jumper…
