(was janerowena) We are all now doing a simple version of fairisle/intarsia at my knitting club, they all wanted to make xmas jumpers for their OHs so I found a simple pattern in super chunky wool. At least, I thought it would be simple for them but there is a band of ribbing all the way down each side of the garment, to add to their troubles. I ended up last week literally running around the table re-writing the pattern to get rid of the ribbing so they could concentrate on the snowflake pattern! They all want to run before they can walk.
If anyone wants an easy introduction, this is the pattern
We are omitting the ribbed striped edgings.
Also, I am making the smallest size, and was doubtful there would be enough wool - there isn't. I did the back and a sleeve first, that took just over half and so there definitely wouldn't have been enough for even a simple neck, which is what mine will have, not the roll neck pictured.
