Pretty Frilled Jumper

  • With broken rib, button details and frills to finish, Pretty Frilled Jumper brilliantly brings together ease and occasion to create an unforgettable garment.

    This 1930s jumper pattern features an interesting construction, with the lower front and back each worked from side to side. The deep ribbed welt, typical of the period, is picked up and worked down from these sideways panels, then the upper yoke stitches are picked up from the top and worked vertically upward. Sleeves are worked separately, as are the fabulous neck and sleeve frills, before all pieces are sewn together. With its union of workaday rib with fancy frills, we love the idea of pairing this cosy number with your favourite jeans for those days you want just a bit of extra drama.

    Pretty Frilled Jumper is knitted using Wold 2 Ply fingering weight in shade Verdigris OR Excelana North fingering weight in shade Virginia.

    Our model Lola is shown wearing the second size 92-97cm (36-38).

    The pattern includes instructions for eight sizes to fit chest measurements between 81cm (32in) and 157cm (62in) and contains clear written instructions plus a comprehensive schematic diagram and sizing chart.
