A New Yarn Project

Hi Everyone
I wanted to share a little idea I have for a new jumper. I've been looking for a jumper pattern for cotton yarn for a while and think I've found one. I love the idea of knitting on a round needle and eliminating as many seams as possible. I find knitting in the round approach produces a neat and shapely result every time, especially around the shoulders. It also allows a great fit for length of sleeves and finished garment length as it's possible to try on the developing piece as you knit. The pattern is a free download from Ravelry - which is amazing. Thank you to Heidi Kirrmaier for access to her pattern.
I'd like to knit the jumper in some great yarn from Wool and the Gang - a denim style cotton which produces a very soft knit. Here is a few images to illustrate the project.

My jumper will be a loose fit around the body but as I've mentioned I can make the arm length and the bottom of the jumper exactly to my size.

Thanks for calling in.
