I remember in the '80's, the batwing jumpers, so I was a bit surprised when I bought a bag of yarn, to find a pattern for a batwing jumper was included.
However, this one was knit in a completely different way to which I'm used. The body parts were knit from side to side, the arms were then knit from the main body.
The good thing about that is, there are only two seams to sew up at the end.
This jumper is knit using Wendy Wisp yarn, which can be quite a pain. The bobbles in the yarn meant having to buy a seperate yarn for sewing up, and it was quite difficult trying to find something that would blend with the colour. I got there eventually, and now, my knitting bag is bare, but not for much longer.
