You want me to come out and say hello? Little old me?
Oh, alright then…
This is my completed Debbie Bliss Flower Yoked Sweater – without the crocheted flowers featured in the original version:
Why didn’t I add the flowers? First of all, practicality: can you imagine pressing those little sods after every wash? Second of all, that thorny topic of age appropriate dressing. I’m, you know, 41 not 12.
Otherwise, as you can see, I copied the jumper exactly using the same shade of Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino. I had to run to John Lewis and buy an extra ball in order to complete the make – so annoying when that happens. I was also taken aback that there’s a reason those crochet flowers were added – to disguise the details of where the yoke is reduced. I hate to say it, but I’m not sure this is good knitting design when you have to plonk something on top to hide things, but hey – I still have an extremely wearable jumper with a retro vibe perfect for wearing with my mustard Simplicity 3688. I love the deep rib on the waist.
A person could wear this jumper with a circle skirt and feel as though they’d stepped straight out of Grease or Peggy Sue Got Married.
It’s a great item to wear going into Autumn. I just need a playmate to kick through the leaves with now…
I’ll count to 100, you go and hide.
