Christmas Knit-A-Long: Jenni’s progress part 2
Started part two of our Christmas Knit-A-Long yet? Here is Jenni’s knitting progress for the front. We can’t wait to hear how you are getting along too – don’t forget to tell us in the comments box below!
My progress is finally here! I apologise for the delay and so sorry for the inconvenience of taking down the pattern. We wanted to make sure it was perfect for you all and we finally worked out what had gone wrong. For the smaller size, which is the size I am knitting, there are no issues, so if you have made this size, you’re all good. However, for all other sizes, there was an issue with the number of sts to cast off at the neckline, which I think some of you spotted and corrected yourself, but it meant that the stitches were not aligned. The stranding section is fine, so no need to change this.
Now that it is updated, I’d like to share my progress with you, and hope that you will too! I enjoyed knitting the front part of the jumper but I must admit I was quite nervous at first because it was my first time knitting honeycomb cable! However, once I started, I realised just how easy it is! Once I had finished, it felt great to look at it and say I knitted that! Do you feel like that too?
I did something slightly different to what was stated in the pattern at the neckline cast off section. Instead of casting off, I put the stitches onto a pin so that I don’t have to pick up and knit that section later, which should give the neck a little more stretch (I’m knitting the small size so it might be easier on a bigger more wobbly baby head). This means there won’t be a seam there, but if I don’t like the way it looks or it turns out to be too loose, I’ll take it back it back and knit as instructed. I sometimes try to make my own little changes to a pattern if I think they’ll be easier, but they don’t always work out and they’re not for everyone! Take a look at my picture progress…
How are you getting on? Share your progress!
