When we went to Tamworth for our little Pattern Review Sewing Down Under get-together at the start of the year, we visited the local Fabric Store and I bought a few lovely pieces from this gem of a shop. (you need to visit it if you are passing through Tamworth). One of the pieces I bought was a lovely sweater knit in a gorgeous teal colour. Soft and squishy, I am not sure of it's fabric content, but wonder if there is some rayon in it.

Now that I was looking for what to sew next, Pattern Review has obliged by pointing me in the direction of sweater knit sewing as they are running a sweater knit contest.
Well in this nice series of being pointed toward what to sew next, I had previously muslined the Paprika Patterns Jasper Sweater. I had planned to make it in a nice sweatshirt knit I had, but I did not have enough to make it so left it for the moment.

The Jasper sweater is not intended for a sweater knit but for a sweaty knit (sweatshirt) or a French terry but I read up on how to deal with sweater knit fabric and decided to go for it.

I have not put my details on sewing it here as it is all contained in my review - here.
