ABBREVIATIONS

For a full list, see page 92 This fun, colour­ful jumper has an over­sized, slouchy fit. Its yoke and new sleeve shape add up to retro styling with a mod­ern look, – it’s des­tined for the work Christ­mas lunch.

NOTES

This Jumper is made in the round in one piece from the top down, and di­vided at the base of the armholes for the Sleeves and Body. A neckline round is added af­ter­wards, once the pat­tern is es­tab­lished.

Fas­ten off each of the ch-sp round colours at the end of the round, and carry Sailor Blue across the back of the next round un­less the pat­tern states oth­er­wise.

The length of the Jumper in the im­age is a cropped fit, but it is easy to lengthen the Body by work­ing ex­tra rounds. The yarn quan­ti­ties given are for the pat­tern, so you may need ex­tra yarn for a longer jumper.
