Daughters Pullover in Emu Shetland Boucle
My daughter found some of this yarn in a charity shop and asked me to knit her a warm loose jumper, we looked at the patterns on www.garnstudio.com and found a jumper she liked, this is it with added stripes as we had two shades of yarn, coffee and cream. I find the garnstudio site really useful, patterns can be searched by type but also by stitch tension, and they cover a generous range of sizes. I don't know how old the Emu yarn is but it's certainly very warm, it was keeping me cosy whilst I knitted with it.
