It’s all about the drama with the Cryscelle pattern, with statement bishop sleeves stealing the show! Clever dropped stitches, combined with a deep shirred cuff, create drama and drape for this fabulous jumper’s sleeves. The sleeves’ volume is balanced by a tailored plain bodice, for a high impact garment. Pair with a flowing black skirt for a dramatic evening look, or work in cheery brights and pair with jeans for a joyful everyday sweater!

Cryscelle is knitted using Mallory, a luxurious sportweight yarn with a composition of 50% Merino wool, 50% Silk creating a beautiful soft fabric for those special projects. Shown here in shades Jet and Seolfor.

Our model Theodora is shown wearing the second size 86-92cm (34-36in).

The pattern includes instructions for seven sizes to fit chest measurements between 76cm (30in) and 152cm (60in) and contains clear written instructions plus a comprehensive schematic diagram and sizing chart.

Yarn kits are available at Susan Crawford Vintage.
