This chunky jumper will prove a favorite. You can knit it with short
sleeves for the summer or long sleeves for the colder months.
The combination of D.K wool and a lacy pattern make it attractive
and quick to knit. I’ve stated that it’s probably a 50’s jumper but it
could just as easily be a late 40’s.
To fit a 32-36 ins Bust
You will need 10oz. (approx 285g) for the short sleeve and 13oz.
(aprrox 370g) for the long sleeve. Pair each No. 9 (3.75mm) and
No. 6 (5.00mm) needles. A No. 8 (4.00mm) Aero crochet hook
The original yarn used was Penelope’s W.B Mardale D.K wool.
Tension over the pattern on No. 6 (5mm) needles 9 sts. to 2 inches
and 6 rows to 1 inch.
The needles and Hooks are old U.K sizes so I have included a
conversion chart for reference to mm and U.S size needles
The pattern comes as one easy to download and print PDF
