Recently Off The…: Tweedy Junior (1 and 2)

During October and November, I worked on two jumpers. One was for my nephew and the other was for my friend’s daughter/Rex’s bestie. Similar to post earlier in January, now that Christmas has been and gone, I can actually share about it. The pattern is Tweedy Junior by Hedgehog Fibres. I found it via Ravelry but it is available directly from their website here.

Recently Off The Needles

Tweedy Junior – Rainbow Version

Pattern: Tweedy Junior by Hedgehog Fibres
Needles: 4mm and 3.5mm
Yarn: Stylecraft Merry Go Round in Rainbow (3142) (Wool Warehouse) and Special DK in Sherbet (Wool Warehouse)

Having finished the Flax Light by TinCanKnits – I wanted something along similar lines but different and came across this one on Ravelry. I found this pattern from Hedgehog Fibres and completed the first one which is in the variegated green yarn. Having finished that – I decided the pattern was easy enough to follow and that I’d do it in some other yarn – so reached for the Merry Go Round in Rainbow.

Having weighed the green jumper, I realised I was fractionally short on yarn, I started it anyway with the plan that I could either order another ball from the Wolplein (the nearest Stylecraft distributor. They are based in The Netherlands and will definitely be my go to if I need any more Stylecraft yarn for projects) or add in something different. In the end, I raided the stash and looked for something that would go with it. In the end I went with the Stylecraft Special DK in Sherbet which went really well with the rest of the colours which was great! (It turned out I had 120cm left over when I switched to the Sherbet. Not sure that would have been enough for the cuff too but it at least got me to the cuff and I could switch).

Tweedy Junior – Green Version

Pattern: Tweedy Junior by Hedgehog Fibres
Needles: 4mm and 3.5mm
Yarn: Akrylgarn from Yarn and Friends (Netto yarn)

As if doing it once wasn’t enough, I then went to cast it on again with different yarn for my nephew. I made him a jumper a year or so ago and it was a bottom up and the body wasn’t quite long enough… oops! So this one being top down, meant that if it really wasn’t long enough, I could post my Mum the extra yarn or I could take it on my next visit back to the UK and make sure it was long enough for him.

The pattern was easy enough to follow. I loved the way the colours came together and when I got R to try it on (he’s 9ish months younger than my nephew) it looked good so I was on a win!

    These look so good! I love the rainbow one especially. My grandma taught me to knit such a long time ago, but I haven’t picked up any needles for years. I really should give it a go again. I found it really theraputic before. X

    Awh I love that rainbow jumper! I need to get knitting again at some point, although I’ve only ever managed a scarf!
