Work on my jumper is continuing – I decided to forge ahead with the front piece. I’m going to leave the blue side panels as they were. As said in some comments, the side panels are not very obvious, and will look quite nice with jeans. The design by crowd sourcing (as Kate referred to in her post Fabrickated ) is very useful and way more helpful than talking to myself!
Here’s how it looks at present –
The pieces are seamed together and the next thing to do is to pick up stitches around the neck to knit the neckband.
I have added some light grey stitching over the darker section, to break up the large colour block, and will also add some more blue. Before and after can be seen below –
I’m using duplicate stitch to scatter the colours on the front panel. There’s a good explanation of the stitch hereThe Purlbee
Not much left to finish!
