Striped, tex­tured jumper

BRE­TON TOPS never seem to go out of style, thanks to their clas­sic shape and ap­peal­ing blue and white stripes. Chloe Web­ster has cre­ated a knit­ted ver­sion, worked in a DK-weight cot­ton to give a pretty yet re­laxed gar­ment. She has com­bined her stripes with a star stitch tex­tured pat­tern. Her de­sign fea­tures but­toned shoul­ders, and a con­trast­ing stripe pat­tern on the sleeves. Our sam­ple has been knit­ted in Pa­tons 100% Cot­ton DK, a mer­cerised cot­ton yarn that comes in a wide choice of colours.
