Colour Work, Pick Up and Knit, Shaping, Knit, Purl
When has a personalised jumper with an initial ever not been a good idea??! With this instant download pattern you can get knitting this straight away for yourself and all your family and friends – just call yourself Mrs Weasley (Harry Potter fans, you’ll know what I’m talking about!!) and give them out as festive presents!
Using basic colourwork techniques to add an initial to our ‘Roll With It’ jumper, you can create this glorious initial jumper – which is Harry’s personal favourite!
This kit is perfect for intermediate knitters – it uses a combination of knit & purl stitches and some basic shaping. However, there are some ‘pick up and stitch’ techniques around the neckline – which is useful to add to your knitting knowledge if you’ve not tried it before! There is also some basic colourwork knitting to do for the letter, but you’ll soon get the hang of it, and we’ve got lots of videos and help guides on our Knitting Knowledge page.
