Such A Debonair Little Jumper

  • This delightful sweater was first published in the late 1930s and cleverly combines an intricate lace pattern with a simple ribbed yoke and square neckline. The sweater is designed to be worn with negative ease with the lace section stretched over the wearer's body. Due to the complexity of the design, different sizes for this pattern are achieved with subtle gauge changes so it is important to match your gauge to that required in the pattern. The sweater is knitted in separate flat pieces and then sewn together.

    Such A Debonair Little Jumper is knitted using Susan Crawford Breeze, a fingering weight yarn created from Merino and Cotton and is shown here in shade Nephthea.

    Our model Miranda is shown wearing the second size to fit chest 86-91cm (34-36in).

    The pattern includes instructions for five sizes to fit chest measurements between 71cm (28in) and 121cm (48in) and contains both clear written pattern directions, together with optional charted instructions for the lace pattern, plus a comprehensive schematic diagram and sizing chart.
