DROPS design Jumper with shirred pattern in yoke
lanka: DROPS Alpaca, 500gr
puikot: 5mm ja 4,5mm

Tätä paitaa varten opettelin magic looppaamaan, mikä onnistui todella kivuttomasti Ullan ohjeilla. Nyt vain ärsyttää, että on aikasemmin äheltänyt sen sijaan että olisi opetellut noin yksinkertaisen tekniikan. Joka tapauksessa, tästä paidasta tuli kyllä ehdoton lemppari! (loppuhuomautuksena: kerrankin tuli oikean mittainen toi keskivartalo-osuus ko lisäilin reippahasti senttejä pituuteen, noin 10 cm)


For this jumper I actually taught myself the magic loop technique which was surprisingly pain-free with the help of Ulla. Now the only thing that pisses me off is that I didn't look up this technique before but kept fumbling without it for ages. In any case, this jumper became my absolute favourite! (on a final note: the jumper actually fits because I addes some extra centimetres to the torso part, about 10cm or so)

Sheena: Thank you so much! I recommend knitting this sweater, the pattern was easy and despite all the stockinette stitch, not boring to knit.

Tess: Kiitoksia kiitoksia :)
