From Breton with Love
From Breton with Love is inspired by my day to day wardrobe, which features an awful lot of Breton-striped t-shirts. One day I decided that it would be really cute if my daughter could almost but not quite match me when we're out and about, and this is what I came up with.
The From Breton with Love jumper is knitted in pieces from the bottom up; the neckline is knitted on in the round after seaming the shoulders of the jumper. The heart motif is added using the intarsia technique. The whole jumper is knitted in a 6-row stripe sequence.
The pattern for the intarsia section is provided both as a chart and as written instructions.
The yarn requirements are for the white sample. The blue sample is knitted in Stylecraft Life DK (75% wool, 25% acrylic, 298 m [325 yds] per 100 g ball) in Navy (2313, MC), White (2300, CC1) and Fushia (2344, CC2).
