......... for Steven completed. This started as 'Jack' sweater from Rowan Junior. After I completed the back, I realised I had made a mistake in the stitch pattern. Each repeat should have covered 20 rows and I had only 6. So much tighter cables, I don't know why I didn't realise. Rather than frog the back, I decided to make the rest to match. I then decided a jacket would be more useful than a sweater so divided the front, added front bands and buttons. I used Sirdar Denim Tweed DK which is lovely and soft and machine washable, essential for Steven's clothes.

Here it is modelled by the recipient.

Yesterday I sent off my contribution to the Lutsk Orphanage appeal. I've always enjoyed knitting for children and when I worked in Residential Nurseries years ago, knitted constantly for the children.
