 My design ideas and advice: This jumper is perfect for men and woman. I have loved seeing the various colour ways knitters have chosen as well as using the original colour way. What I love the most about this pattern is it’s simplicity and how many knitters don’t believe me when I say it is just knitting, just garter stitch 2 row striping and only using one colour in the row. It uses a slip stitch technique my favourite way of doing colourwork. I love simple, simple, simple knitting. Sometimes things can seem really complicated or overwhelming and what I want my designs and patterns to do is bring simple soothing stitches into a knitter’s life. So they can pick up the needles and have a feel rows of calm in the hectic.
