I bought a jumper in my local store last year and it quickly became my favourite jumper. I wanted to see if I could make my own version as I had some yarn that I'd bought a year or so ago that had been sitting in my stash (as I am sure we all have). I have spent many nights counting stitches and crocheting and unpicking but I am really pleased with the results. This is just dc (UK terms) into the chain spaces which gives a bit of stretch to the garment when finished. I am sure the jumpers will be well worn in the winter months.
