Little Jockey Wrap

IMG_4052It’s been all  about the sewing lately. Knitting has definitely taken a back seat. The last knit was the Christmas Elf so it was high time I did some real knitting.

IMG_4031So a jumper for Dougie then. I love knitting with Sublime baby cashmere merino silk. It lives up to its name.  Last year sometime we saw  a sample knitted up in Clare Wools on Great Darkgate Street and loved it.

sublime-book-653The pattern is from the Ninth Little Sublime Hand Knit Book, which is all patterns for boys. Now there’s a rare thing!

It’s a deceptively simple 4 row pattern worked with 2 strands of yarn which gives  a lovely texture to the finished knit.

I enjoyed knitting it but the collar was a fiddle to fit and I nearly forgot to add the gorilla button when it was finally in place.

Dougie looks very snug in it but I don’t know how he feels  – that’s his  ‘Uh oh’ pose!IMG_0333
