Vintage Knitting



A jumper for me, knitted in some fairly vintage jaeger matchmaker 4ply using a vintage P&B pattern, pleased with the result which fits well, this uses inset increases from the waist up to create two decorative darts on both front and back, and then some short rows to create extra fullness on the front only. I think I prefer knitting with finer yarns, although the matchmaker was very springy and any dropped stitch immediately dropped down.
