A Stitch In Time Volume 2 Revisited

  • Tri-Cable Stitch Jumper is a stylish fitted cardigan originally from the 1930s and designed to be worn as a jumper. An all-over cable stitch makes this an absorbing and interesting knit. This garment is knitted in pieces and sewn together on completion. The button bands are knitted in with the front body pieces so there is no picking up of stitches required. It also features set in sleeves and a decorative tie collar.

    Tri-Cable Stitch Jumper is knitted using Excelana 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 Ruby Red.

    Our model Becky is shown wearing the first size 81-86cm (32-34in) worn with 2.5cm (1in) of positive ease.

    The pattern includes instructions for ten sizes to fit chest measurements between 81cm (32in) and 157cm (62in) and contains both clear written pattern directions, together with charted instructions for cable instructions plus a comprehensive schematic diagram and sizing chart.
