VINTAGE WINTER JUMPER KIT

£122.00

For years I have dreamed of my ultimate Christmas jumper and never found a suitable pattern. When I was given the opportunity to enter the hand knit Christmas jumper contest on Kirstie’s Handmade Christmas in 2017, I began designing and knitting furiously.

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. This listing includes the yarn required all in an adorable Ginger Twist Studio cotton bag.

The PDF pattern that will be emailed to you. Or if you would like the pattern added to your Ravelry library, please provide your Ravelry Username in the 'order notes.'
