Wonder Woman Knitted Jumper

Wonder Woman Jumper Knitting Project


Wonder Woman is awesome!  Why wouldn’t you want to be her?  She’s strong, independent, caring, and kicks ass!

This knitting pattern can be found for free on Ravelry by Natalie Bursztyn.

It took me about a month to complete, on evenings and weekends.  I actually did the entire back piece in one day!  Because I couldn’t put it down.  I did however do and undo the pattern across the bust probably about 3 times, just to get it right.  And I was experimenting with the techniques to do the colourwork.

The technique is not specified within the pattern, so you have to do what you feel is best.  I used the intarsia method for the larger blocks of pattern at the cuffs, bottom hem, and stars.  The bust pattern I ended up using the fairisle technique, as it left fewer holes and the tension could be kept more constant.

For my very first attempt at making a whole jumper/sweater – it’s not bad!  I’ll get tidier with practice.
