  1. I really like the top one, it would make a great 1940s jumper.
    I’ve started on a basic knit at the moment but seeing that makes me see I have a long way to go! Your very clever.

    1. Don’t be fooled, once you get the knit and purl stitch sorted though you can pretty much make anything! Good luck with the scarf knitting, just a warning though – it can get very addictive!
