How about jumpers for presents?

Here' a picture of the jumper that I've just finished. I got it from a pattern in November's version of Knit magazine, the All the Jazz jumper. I used a merino wool mix and the jumper is really warm and soft. I used about 11 balls of wool at £3.00 each which for a really luxurious item like this would cost ,I reckon, at least £60 in the shops. You can also use a half wool/ half acrylic mix , which  is cheaper about  £2 a ball  and you'd still get a good result.
The pattern, which is really easy stocking stitch is available on the mag's website Happy knitting.
