Another Lockdown jumper!

 During Lockdown I have knitted lots of cardigans, and jumpers using "left over" wool from other projects. This has meant that most of the jumpers have had to have stripes as I don't have enough of one colour to make a jumper.

This one has been made in various shades of green with purple bobbles knitted into the design.

I used an old pattern as a guide and then worked out how to match up the stripes.

To match up the stripes you have to count the rows down from the shapings of the sleeves to the correct length. Then you start at that point of the pattern so that by the time you have got half way up the sleeves you are syncronised with the stripes on the body.

This jumper is for my two year old grand daughter.
