Hello, welcome to the Zeens and Roger Crochet Podcast! This is Episode 86 (not 85 like I say, with blissful ignorance, on this episode). I have crochet sweaters (jumpers) on the go in this episode as well as a couple of magazine features that you might be interested in. One is my latest design in Inside Crochet, called Ostara. It is the most perfect cosy cowl for this time of year. The other is a C2C blanket in issue 107 of Simply Crochet. On the back page is a little article I wrote about one of my favourite makes too.
Crochet Good Stuff:
The Color Pop Sweater by My Square Hat
Yarns used in the jumper are: Longdog Yarns (Twilight and Wild Child), Jasper on the Elba base is Mr Bs from Birdstreet UK and Beehive Yarns: Cemetery Gates.
For further info on Dora’s new e-book, go HERE. It’s well thought out and really useful. If you want a hand to hold whilst you start to make your first crochet garments, or want to go that step further from basic jumpers then this is for you. Dora/Michelle sent me a copy as a gift but I wouldn’t gush about it if I didn’t think it was legit.
Check out my jazzed up Patreon with all it’s Tiers!! I’m so pleased. It’s really good value, especially if you’re often tempted by my patterns!
Or, if you’re not up for bargains and glorious extra content, you can always support me on Ko-fi. Thank you!
You may have missed my yarn dyeing videos, HERE is the blog post I wrote (it has links to the vids too)

I bought the Chainette Turtle neck by Knits and Knots. I’m using Cascade 220 superwash for my my green jumper and I bought it from Wool Warehouse. Its Tree Top green. It says it’s a DK but I think it’s an aran or worsted, especially as other DKs have an much higher meterage.
Here is my first top tips blog post from a few years ago. I’d like to write a sequel or update the ones there. Do you have any suggestions please?! I would love to hear from you. You can leave a comment here or over on YouTube. Cheers.
If you fancied a shopping spree, I am just popping this Lovecrafts Affiliate link. Just in case… it is no extra cost to you but for me, I get 5% of the sale. More (I think it’s 15%) if you’re a new customer.
I think that’s it for now, if you have any questions, give me a shout! Thank you! xxx

I still remember that you’re the one who verified for me that a “jumper” was what we call a “sweater” in the US. 😀Your projects turned out great!
Haha! Pre-garment making I would never have used the word sweater to mean jumper but find myself doing it more and more. 😀
