DESCRIPTION

The ELLA Jumper is a trapezoidal cut oversize jumper with a similar fit to a bat sweater. The jumper is worked top down with increases along the knitted pieces. You start working the first side of the neckband and front piece and shape the drop down shoulders by working short rows. The deep V-neck is shaped by increases, the slanted sleeves by decreases, which are first worked to the armhole openings.

You then pick up stitches for the second front piece as well as the back piece, which are worked to the armhole openings, too. You then place all three pieces on one circular needle and close to the round. During this process, you work additional decreases for the slanted sides at the lower body.

The sleeve stitches are picked up around the armhole openings. Due to the top down technique, the jumper’s length can be easily adjusted to personal measurements. The instruction includes a detailed model sketch with all necessary measurements.

As a design element, the jumper has pretty garter stitch rows and nice wide slip stitch cuffs at hem and sleeve hems. Due to the trapezoidal wide oversize cut, the jumper has a similar fit to a bat sweater.

GAUGE AND PATTERN

3threads of yarn (1thread/ quality); choose the right needle size:

NOTE: Steps 1 – 3 are worked in rows, from step 4 on in rounds. As the knit stitches are often worked slightly tighter as the purl stitches, a smaller needle size than the main needle size is used for the ws-rows in order to achieve an even stitch pattern in rows and rounds.
