So Amelie got her jumper today. I did a classic Elizabeth Zimmermann seamless raglan (oh, how much I love her patterns) The only modification I did is that I started the sleeves on more stitches, since it's for a baby and I've thrown in few stripes. It still has pretty much adult proportions... I used Pure cashmere yarn (Hedgehog) held double in Malice colourway.
It turned out pretty big! Perhaps for next winter...
The writing on the hem was tricky. I tried carrying the darker colour yarn on the back of the hem by the means of 'trapping' which is a technique for doing intarsia on a piece of circular kniting - Meg Swansen explained it on one of the dvds they did with EZ (I think it was Knitting Glossary). Basically you carry both yarns at the same time, all the time. But the dark colour yarn was peeking through to the right side and it looked weird, so in the end I cut it on every row and had to weave in a lot of ends. But it looks neater.
So this jumper is for next year therefore I'll have to make another one (or two) for this year, one that is slightly smaller... Because Amelie is being such a good girl, she deserves to be wrapped in wooly goodness!
