Hello all! Today I am here to share with you my Neon Moon Jumper, which I finished earlier this week.
The pattern is called Sailors Moon Cropped Sweater, by Cre8tion Crochet. You may well remember this pattern, as I have already made one of these jumpers in the past using Noro Haniwa. You can find the blog post here.
The yarn is Blue Moon Fibre Arts Plushy, in colourway Dye Dreamer.
As before, I had to add an extra 5 rows to the bust area before decreasing for the ribbing, else the jumper would have ended before my bust did, which probably wouldn’t have looked great!
Unlike before, I did not have to mess about with sizing. I have lost weight since making the last one, so instead of having to start with xlarge and end with 2XL. I was able to make an XL throughout.
I love how the neon colours pop against the darker grey.
And I love how the yarn makes its own zig zag patterns in some places.
This jumper will be a lovely reminder of my time spent in San Francisco. Yes the yarn is from Oregon but I purchased it on my birthday in San Francisco, and wandering around Bethnal Green yesterday taking these photographs reminded me of all the insane street art we saw in the Mission.
