WIP Wednesday - Christmas jumper #2

Happy Wednesday folks! Only 2 and a bit days until the weekend lol. We've all been passing around a cold in my house so looking forward to having a chance to chill out and recover at the weekend. Plus with school, pre-school and toddler group all having various Christmas events, it's quite busy this time of year.

Speaking of Christmas, today I want to share with you the last knitted gift I'm making for my children. All 4 of them are getting something hand-knitted for Christmas day and this one is for my youngest son. Older readers might recognise that I made my eldest son a hoody using the same yarn and pattern. I'm trying to make this one a bit different for him though

It's hoodless, has cabled raglan increases and a garter stitch hem instead of a split hem done in moss stitch. I'm also going to add a kangeroo pocket to it as well.

I cast off the hem yesterday but it's a little tighter that I'd like so I think I'll undo it and use a stretchier cast off. It's baggy enough he can wear it but I'm just not completely happy with it.

That's it from me for today, thank you for visiting my blog. I'm going to my eldest two children's Christmas performance this afternoon which I'm very much looking forward to :-)

    1. the cable is just positioned in between the two raglan increases so not quite as impressive as it sounds lol but it looks nice I think :)

  2. I love it!! The colors are really nice-- it almost looks like a Knit Picks Felici colorway that I have in my stash, but I like the gentler color changes that this has :)

    1. It's nice yarn actually considering it's acrylic

  5. I love love love the cabled raglan increases! Do you have a pattern for them? I've knitted a raglan sweater before but I always thought the increases looked kind of boring. This would be perfect for my next sweater project!!

    1. The cable stitches are just in between the raglan increases. The pattern I'm using is the Little Hoodlum which is well written and has a range of sizes although it's for children rather than adults
