Dinah's Lacy Jumper

  • With stretchy lace, a touch of rib and a neat collar, Dinah's Lacy Jumper features an easy-to-remember ribbed lace pattern to create an effortless chic top. This elegant yet easy to wear sweater is knit in pieces from the bottom up, commencing with a deep rib. The body of the jumper is knit in a ribbed lace, giving the top a lovely elasticity, with ribbed detail at the yoke and an eye-catching keyhole detail. Sleeves and collar are knit flat, with sleeveheads gathered when seaming to create a slight puff. The result is a showstopping top, perfect for wearing with a pencil skirt or high waisted shorts.

    Dinah's Lacy Jumper is knitted using North fingering weight a soft, fingering weight 100% British wool, spun for us in nearby Yorkshire and dyed in-house by Susan and her team. Shown here in shade Himalayan Blue.
