This is a somewhat belated blogging effort - took the photo ages ago, meant to get one of me wearing it, but haven't managed yet. So, here's the one of it blocking instead.

This was knit to my own non-pattern, out of Debbie Bliss Maya. I knit it on 5 mm needles. It has a knitted hem, subtle shaping on the sides, and the sleeves are just that little bit too long that I like. It's toasty, and I love the colour. There is a 4 cable braid going up the front of the jumper, which splits at the v and that part (not the cable, the v) gave me all sorts of issues! I think I've resolved them pretty successfully in the end...

It's a bottom-up raglan, only finishing required (after spit splicing the joins) was to sew up the underarms and attach the braid collar. Simple!
