the patterns I still want to know about the basic construction of a jumper. Last night I searched on
YouTube for something that would help and stumbled upon Knit Picks "How To Knit A Sweater"
The videos cover 7 lessons were Nina explains how to take measurements, calculate the number
of stitches, decreases, increases, sleeves and the neck line. You can use the lessons to design
your own jumper by adding your chosen colours and stitch pattern.
The videos were great and made the idea of knitting a jumper less daunting. Along with the videos
there are notes which you can download, with all the calculations and space to note down your own.
Here's a link to the blog were the videos are posted. The bottom link is for lesson 2, which for
some reason isn't with the others.
You can download the PDF for each lesson in the blog post.

I'm currently running a sale on Etsy, MISI, and Craftsy, with 25% off everything. I want to do the same on Ravelry but need to sort some technical issue first. This sale will run until the 30th of September. There will then be 10% off your next purchase valid from the 1st of October. Happy shopping.
