This really is my current favourite make. It’s a really flattering design for me because of the detail on the top and sleeves which helps to balance out my smaller top half. The On the Grass jumper by Joji Locatelli is a straight forward design but it looks more complicated than it is. The main pattern stitch is double seed stitch which looks really impressive but is one of the most basic stitch patterns.
I made this jumper alongside making a jumper for my sister with a more complicated stitch pattern. This was my quick and easy project to work on in parallel and keep me motivated. It worked and this jumper was finished in about 2 weeks even with working full time so it’s a really quick make!
The Madelinetosh yarn in Hosta Blue is fabulous turquoise colour that looks amazing in person. I love all the Madelinetosh colourways but this is definitely one of the best I’ve worked with. One complaint I do have about Madelinetosh is that I ordered online and I do think that some of the skeins were different dyelots. I got around it by changing skein every now and then so you can’t really tell but it is annoying when you have to do that.
I really enjoyed making my On the Grass Jumper and love wearing it even more. It’s really comfortable and cosy (now it’s getting a little too warm to wear it anymore!). I really don’t want the weather to get colder but one good thing would be that I’ll be able to wear this jumper again!
