In order to re-knit a jumper, sometimes you’ve got to completely unravel two of the sides (the front and back are the bundles of yarn just under this text).

Petra has a new jumper! The first of many, I’m sure. I adjusted the pattern a little to make it fit better, and Petra and I are both very happy with the results!
