Simple Jumper

I knit this for my nephew, Chris, when I was in Mexico, but washed and blocked it here in Canada before giving it to him. I used Shetland wool from Jamieson and Smith in Lerwick and 3.25mm needles. The colour is grape. I used a top down pattern that I developed over years of trial and error. It always seems to turn out the way I want it to.

Nice work Ron, I think top-down is the way to go, and like rmbm612 wonder if you might write it up to sell or share. Great colour.

Would you consider sharing

Would you consider sharing and/or selling the pattern. Did you use DK weight or spindrift? Jameison Shetland Wool is one of my favorite yarns to use. The sweater is masterfully knit, the color beautiful....wish I were your nephew!
