I haven't been on Craftster for such a long time, but lurk every now and again.

I'm especially proud of this jumper which came out better than I expected. The pattern is from Teva Durham's "Loop-d-Loop" book, the yoke vest, and I added sleeves by picking up and knitting stitches at the armholes and then knitting in the round with occasional decreases.

The yarn is  the textured King Cole Waves (part wool, part acrylic, part nylon) which I bought lots and lots of in a pound shop a few years ago and didn't know what to do with it. It's really soft and easy to wear, if a little heavyweight.

I'm really pleased with the camouflage effect of the yarn.

Thanks for looking

I like the solid green that you added to the bottom!

Thanks meleriffic, it was out of necessity, I didn't have enough of the mixed colour yarn for the whole garment.
