    That victory jumper has been on my wish list for a couple years! I got stuck just at trying to figure the gauge.

    there is a VERY similar one in the book vintage knits, in fact i have a feeling this is the original pattern for it. i can't find my copy right now to check for you. maybe you could borrow it from the library, maybe it would help you.
    what are you a chiropractor anyway!?
