The Perfect Christmas Jumper
by Susan Crawford
This pretty jumper pattern is available in sizes 28-50 inches and is knitted in Jamieson & Smith 2ply jumper weight yarn. This yarn is the equivalent of a standard 4 ply. The jumper is knitted in four separate pieces and uses a combination of Fairisle and Intarsia techniques. Full making up instructions are also included.
Shaping is based on the classic 1940s silhouette and incorporates iconic box sleeve head of the period. Inspired by a 1940s vintage knitting pattern and written for today’s knitter to fit the modern silhouette. The jumper is designed to be worn fitted at the waist.
