Would you like to knit your very own Christmas Jumper, but not feeling quite confident enough? Let us help you! Sign up for this guided KAL (knitalong) where we will gently guide you through the process of making a Christmas themed sweater in the round on circular needles. This will take place over the course of 5 live sessions on Zoom each lasting 2 hours. You will of course have homework to complete between the sessions so we can all complete our jumpers in time for Christmas! Here is the schedule...
Now more about the jumper you will be knitting...
This jumper has a more vintage fit with its cropped body, stripes and colourwork add a bit of whimsy and fun. As the jumper is worked in Aran weight, it also a relatively quick knit. This jumper is knit in the round from the bottom up. Sleeves are knitted first and set aside, then the body. The sleeves are then joined to the body and the yoke is worked in the round to completion. The jumper can easily be modified in length of body and arms to suit your own needs.
This pattern will sent to you as a PDF.
Here are the materials you will need. If you know the colours and yarn you would like to use, go ahead and gather those together. But if not the first session will be a chance to chat about potential choices and sizing.
