I can tackle almost any crochet pattern but I still class myself as a beginner knitter, Knitting take time and patience with dash of determination and I am determined!
I have the basics down.. I think? My knit and purl stitches are now uniformed and I have picked up some speed along the way. I can work the garter and stockinette stitches to gauge but only when working back and forth on a simple blanket piece but never on a pattern piece. So my fellow Pippin Poppets I’m ready for the next step!
A simple pattern but one that challenges me to make a garment!
Introducing the Pippin Knit Club first make along!
Bellissima Chunky Jumper by Stylecraft
This cosy fall jumper uses the garter and stockinette stitch. This pattern has been designed with two necklines, a simple cast on, cast off technique suitable for beginners and an integral neckline shaping for a more advance knitter.
The Cast on Cast off Neckline is done by shaping the neck and then picking up and casting off the picked up stitches to create a continuous cast off edge.
The Integral Neckline is done using short row shaping technique.
