Raglan Jumper

Pattern: V Necked School Jumper by Rita Gulliver
Yarn: Jaeger Matchmaker DK
Needles: 3,25mm and 4mm
Mods: None

The yarn for this jumper was given to our knitting group by a local teacher who had to clear out a cupboard in the art department at her school and wondered if we could make use of it or it was all going in a skip. There were bags and bags of stuff, some of it not useable but a few real gems. There was 350g of this Jaeger Matchmaker yarn which, after I had washed, dried and rewound it, was as good as new.

A great jumper which I am sure will get a lot of wear!

Ooh, and it's a really nice colour, too. Looks soft and cozy--perfect for cold weather.

Really nice, I'm sure it will be greatly appreciated. But as for the yarn going in the skip! how could she, glad to see you were able to rescue and put it to such good use.
