How to Knock out a Few Jumpers (Sweaters) for Christmas

How can you knit everyone you know a jumper for Christmas?

Knit them on 10mm/US size 15 needles like this gorgeous number from 1967

Cabled sweater knit with several strands of yarn on extra large needles.

I have to admit, I don’t usually like garments knit with super bulky yarns, but the cable up the front of this jumper/sweater, is just enough to break up the extra bulkiness caused by using several strands of yarn together.

Check out the pattern: The Super Sonic Knit, from the Australian Women’s Weekly, December 13th 1967¬†and be on your way to filling your Christmas gift collection and emptying your stash at the same time!
