Cheesylove

cheesylove

My version of Cheesylove from Knitty. This is knit in doubleknit, rather than worsted, so I adjusted the pattern a little. It's kind of halfway between the small and medium sizes.

Knit in Patons Beehive (75% Acrylic, 25% Wool) that came out of a large bag in my parents' loft, the hearts are knit in Jaeger Matchmaker Marino doubleknit in Oatmeal that I happened to have left over from a previous jumper. So technically this is a freebie! Knit on 4.5mm.

It's good to wear without anything under, but also over a shirt, and for both casual and work. I'm really pleased with it. It was one I knit over Christmas whilst GG was working on panto in Crawley, so it really didn't take me very long at all! I've had a few compliments on it too, which is always nice, because I was a bit worried it showed off some bumps and lumps I don't normally admit to. It's also ever so slightly see-through. I probably could have dropped to a 4mm needle to solve that.
