I'm really loving the 'top down' yoke method of making jumpers. This one is a tiny newborn baby top that I have made for my sister's baby who is due any day now. I wasn't really following a pattern but used a similar pattern as a guideline. Most of this I made up from my head. I really hope it fits!
I love this wool and I have been dying to make something from it from the first time I gave it a furtive squeese in Miju wools. It's quite expensive at nearly £5 for 50g and I've used 100g in this top plus a little bit of something else for the edging. It's 80% bamboo, 20 % wool which makes it slippery soft and a joy to handle. I love the colour changes too.
Things I like about this top: I started out doing something different but when I realized it wasn't going to work I ripped the whole thing back to the starting chain. This is difficult to do as I used to feel every stitch was precious and must be saved for posterity. It's quite liberating to not care so much about the work put in but that the finished object be the best I can make (not perfect, don't get me wrong!).
I also love the crab stitch on the edging, I have finally got he hang of the reverse crochet!
Now I just need to remember to send it to her before he's born.
