beadsandbarnacles Yay for wardrobe basics. #plainwhitetee
I just need to sort out my machine skipping stitches :-(
And decide if I want to cuff the sleeves (make it a bit longer) or hem them (go shorter)

beadsandbarnacles I have the #fabric and #pattern pages from #burda but have misplaced the magazine telling me what pieces I need to cut out.
Can anyone tell me which pieces correspond to the jumper 112 from Nov 2015 issue. @fehrtrade @susanyoungsewing @thefoldline anyone else?

  •   susanyoungsewing I'm really sorry @beadsandbarnacles but I don't have that issue, mine is January 3w
  •   beadsandbarnacles Don't worry. My sister managed to point out to me that it's the featured pattern that month. So it's nice and easy and in pink @susanyoungsewing 3w
  •   fehrtrade Have you looked to see if it's on burdastyle.co.uk? They have the English instructions as free downloads. 3w

beadsandbarnacles All of the snuggles... turned the #1898hat into a headband.
I think I might have made it a bit deeper than it needed to be. But oh well...
