I love knitting vintage jumpers but my problem is that I rarely finish them. I have a love-hate relationship with finishing projects. I would love to have the finished item, but I, well almost hate finishing, well no, I just don't like it very much. And therefore a lot of unfinished projects have piled up. This Chevron jumper is a case in point. It's knitted but I haven't manage to sew the sleeves on. So, to force myself to get it done I will declare now to sew the sleeves on THIS Saturday.
The Chevron jumper is one of my favourite vintage jumper patterns because of it's construction. The body is knitted from the bottom up, the sleeves from the top down. I chose 4 ply alpaca yarn and knitted as closely according to pattern as possible. The main colour is Drops Alpaca in tomato (3900), the complimentary colour is Artesano 4 ply Alpaca in violet.
Click on the pattern picture at the top if you'd like a copy of the pattern, or see the pattern listed on the vintage pattern gallery. Viel Spass!
