You’ve seen that jumper through every dropped stitch, every wonky seam and every ‘just one more row’ moment a knitter can possibly have. But when can you actually begin that journey of jumper-knitting?
And in fact, what about knitting other large items? Knitters hold lots of different goals in mind.
Some may dream of knitting a large blanket for their bed, others may be craving a Downton-Abbey-style shawl.
