I knew from the moment I saw this fabric that I wated to make a chunky, slouchy, 'I'm welcoming Autumn!' jumper, with a slight flare of fisherman-chic to it.
The fabric was an Abakhan off-cut so I was quite liited to how much I could play with the pattern placement. I would perhaps have preferred the blue stripes at the neckline, but this was a small sacrifice to make to ensure my sleeve and side seams all matched up... Symmetrical heaven! I am so pleased with the stripe matching at the seams, especially as I'd suffered a finger injury a week before making and my dexterity was still slighty compromised!
I made a size 10 and I think this was the best cut for me. I would make again! Let's face it, I will probably make a few in subtley different striped fabrics! Its quick to come together and doesn't require too much concentration... or finger dexterity apparently!
