The best thing anyone has ever told me – and it’s become one of my favorite tricks – 2 strands of DK weight yarn worked together is the same as a strand of chunky weight yarn. And you can create some amazing effects.
Worked with a ‘light’ or ‘dark’ theme – they look amazing. I am working on 5 different sizes for this – and now I have a long, skinny dog I am much more aware that I need to do some longer back lengths. I have worked the backs and next week I plan to tackle the underbody sizing. The Joseph is a full body jumper with no buttons – so the underbody / chest piece sizing needs to be right.
They should start to appear in the shop in a couple of weeks – and work will go on to refine the written pattern for sale if you want to work your own jumper.
