The intriguing two-colour pattern on the Designed in Paris stylish jumper is created using slip stitches meaning only one colour is only ever used on a row at any one time. The stitch can be knitted either of two ways depending on how you wish the jumper to look. The stitch pattern creates an extremely warm fabric perfect for colder autumn or winter days.

Hems and cuff facings are knitted as part of the jumper then folded back and sewn in place. The funnel neck line also includes a single colour facing providing warmth and stability to the neck line. Buttons added on one shoulder for ease of dressing. The three set-in pockets add an elegant finishing touch. The main sections of the garment are knitted separately and then sewn together.

Designed in Paris is knitted using Excelana North fingering weight a soft, fingering weight 100% British wool, spun for us in nearby Yorkshire and dyed in-house by Susan and her team. Shown here using shades Cornflower Blue and Alabaster.

Our model Hayley is shown wearing the first size 81-86cm (32-34in). For a more relaxed fit choose a size with dimensions at least 5cm (2in) larger than the wearer’s chest and hip measurements.

The pattern includes instructions for eleven sizes to fit chest measurements between 86cm (34in) and 152cm (60in) and contains clear written instructions plus a comprehensive schematic diagram and sizing chart.

Yarn kits are available at Susan Crawford Vintage.
