|Elbow-Length Fingerless Mitts|
|My very first cropped cable jumper!|
I am proud to say that I have been in this country for two and a half years. It is high time I read myself a Barbara Cartland novel (the term novel is used very loosely) and knit a classic aran jumper. I have to say I found the later of the two tasks much more enjoyable.
After purchasing a few large hanks of un-dyed aran weight wool for a steal, I was on the pattern hunt: classic and not too cabled. Ravelry, as always, was a great help. The only problem with my desired pattern was its construction…knitted flat. Gasp! Egad!I am now converting this jumper pattern into the round.
This pattern appeared quite fitted, so I opted for the size large to make it extra comfy. The pattern was easy to convert and I’m loving the super dense and squishy textured pattern.
