>Finally, a photo of the finished Rowan Chunky Tweed Sweater:
I’m really happy with it. The hood worked out OK, I thought it might have gone wrong as I’ve never knitted a hood before but it was easy. I was going to make the cord by crocheting three lengths of chains and plaiting them together but I ended up just crocheting one chain and using it on it’s own. The one thing I must remember is to wash it on the woollens cycle in the machine or else I’ll ruin it (something I do quite often!).
I’ve knitted one sleeve of the child’s sweater. I’m still dead chuffed with the way the yoke knitted up – it’s made me want to do more two-colour patterns so there may be some colourful knitting coming up!
Talk to you later,
