Its knit in a double knitting yarn but here in Australia the 8ply we have works just as well.
The only thing I'm not keen on is picking up the stitches all the way round the fronts and the neck to form the band.
Now I don't have an actual picture of the garment I knit recently but this is the pattern picture
I knit it recently to go into a CWA exhibition. Each member of our branch was set the challenge of entering one thing that we enjoyed making.
Only stipulation is that it must be finished in the last 2 years.
This was entered in the Knitting Baby garment section and guess what lol
I received this
Frst prize - Wonders will never cease - something I have never ever got before.
I was very surprised as I was only making up the numbers and it had been knit in 8ply acrylic - not the best of wool for a baby.
My Mum would have been so proud.
She taught me to knit and was a hard task master................... Nothing was ever good enough for her.
