So I have little patience to knit big things but got some 20mm needles free on a magazine so thought I'd make a jumper with some wool I had (aran weight I think, 5-5.5mm needles suggessted) It went like this:

Body:
CO 30
K 30 rws
BO
(x2)

Sleeves:
CO 15
K30 rws
BO
(x2)

Stich up.

I made little ruche thingys by tying pieces of wool rond groups of 5 stitches evenly over the jumper (~not sure if you can see it on the pics.

So yeah. A jumper that's as easy as a scrf, but quicker and more interesting to knit.

Apologies for my ugly mush being in the pics!

Hope you enjoy

That is really cool looking. The yarn works so well with that design, too!

Oh that's clever! It really looks more intricate than it is! Great job.

How much yarn did you use?

Wow, I am going to definitely make one. I've not been brave enough to try a jumper, but I bet I could work up your pattern. It looks great, I hope mine looks half as good. Thank you so much

to answer the Q's:

I used about 2 and 2/3 50g balls...The wool I got was on offer so it cost me about 1.50 ($3) to make.

Needle size was 20mm. the 19mm (US size 35) should do the job just fine.

The yarn was 'mixed fibres' I think it's part mohair. the weight is more than sport weight it's knitted on 5-5.5mm needles whereas sport weight (what we call double knitting I'm presuming) is knitted on 4mm needles...as a general rule.

To tie the grops of stitches together I just cut lengths of wool counted 5 stitches and thread it through and made a knot...hope that makes sense. if not I could do a picture tut. I aware I don't always make sense, lol

Hope all that helped.

Jessica
