    About

    my mum's birthday is coming up and I thought I would treat her to a handmade jumper. I have made a few cabled projects in the past but this was a real challenge that I really enjoyed.

    Needles & Hooks

    • Circular 4.50mm (US 7) 80cm
    • Circular 5.00mm (US 8) 80cm

    Accessories

    • Stitch Markers
    • Tapestry Needle
    • Cable Needle
    • Stitch Holder

    Measurements

    92-97cm

    Notes: I went up a needle size to get gauge, also I have always had trouble with jumpers in the past where they have come out too small!

      Lovely Isabel, I m sure your mum will love it. I love Arrans and the different stitches. Lots of work but well worth it.😀

      Beautiful work Isabel. Reminds me of the many jumpers I had made by my mum. She knew all the Arab patterns in her head and would click away all night whilst watching the TV never looking at the pattern.

      Beautifully knitted. Love the detail. I should think your mum was over the moon when she received it.

        Thanks Julie, she loved it- it was definitely hard not to keep it for myself though!
