Suspend in Big Wool
This jumper is from the latest Rowan Studio book. By wrapping the wool round the needle 10 times for each stitch and then dropping all the extra loops on the return row you create these really long dropped stitches. Had to invest in a KnitPro 1m long circular needle to get all the stitches on at the sleeves. The jumper is worked from hem to hem, casting off and then casting on for the neck opening. I am pretty pleased with the result, though I have tacked a length of black ribbon to the shoulder seam to keep the arms from drooping.
