Anyway as usual I digress completely from the point of this post. In amongst all the super secret squirrel testing I have also had the opportunity to test this gorgeous new boys jersey pattern from the ever talented Julia Stanfield. Julia's ability to get classic and practical designs just right is amazing. This latest design is for a classic unisex v-necked jersey which was exactly what I had been looking for to knit for Mr A in some yarn I had stashed away here. As with all of Julia's designs this is a top-down seamless knit and it is super quick to knit up even in the larger sizes. It will be available in several yarn weights and from nb to 10y so again a great value pattern.
Here is my version of Geryson knitted in Three Irish Girls worsted weight yarn in colourway Aiden. Anyone who knows me will also know that I really don't do lime green so I struggled a bit knitting this up but I must admit I like the colourway now. Also the yarn did some pretty funky pooling things on the sleeves but that's ok.
The day I finished this we all went to the Pauahatanui Wildlife Reserve so I took the opportunity to snap a few pics even though the jersey wasn't blocked at that stage.
Here are a couple more pictures after I blocked it, it did grow a little in length of body and sleeves and the fit is fantastic after blocking.
Best of all though is that he loves it. The TIG yarn has washed up so lovely and soft, my only problem now is getting it off him long enough to wash it. I can see this will become my go to pattern for Mr A over the next few winter's. Once again well done Julia on another awesome pattern.
