I love designing simple, easy to knit patterns that might look complicated to the beginner but are very easy to knit. And for the experienced knitter? I like to create simple patterns as refreshers in-between complicated patterns or mindless knitting, to sit with and relax and switch off.

I designed this for gentlemen, but as always with all my designs they are great for all shapes and genders.
I love designing simple hand knits for male knitters and for knitters to knit garments for the males in their lives! And I love wearing these simple shapes, it’s something I have always done.
This is an updated and revised version of the Dorothy Jumper, which is more cropped and has a wider rib.
This Devon Jumper is perfect for lengthening or shortening to your ideal measurements. Or you can follow the pattern as is and therefore just sit back and relax with the soothing stocking stitch.
As with most of my patterns I’ve adding details that make the knitting enjoyable and create shape. And these little details make a big difference.
