This feather-light jumper is knitted seamlessly from the top down.
The yoke is shaped with short rows so that the back will be higher than the front.
The construction is quite easy:
Raglan sleeves, a wide boat neck and fitted sleeves balance out the wide A-shaped bottom so that the finished garment has both elegance and drape.
A lot of textured details make this jumper a garment that is fun to knit and interesting to wear! There are cables at the shoulders, enclosed by a triangle of purls, and also at the sides, where they flare out at your natural waist to follow a textured curve of double moss stitch on the front and on the back.
This form and stitch reminded me of the lattice you find sometimes on doors in Morocco!
The same pattern is repeated at the cuff of the sleeves, which are double-sided so that you can easily fold them up or down.
There are two PDFs you get in one zip file, one is the pattern in french and the other is in english.
24 sts and 38 rows in 10 cm/4" in double moss
22sts and 36 rows in 10 cm/4" in Stocking stitch
on 4mm/ US 6 needles, after blocking.
(your gauge should be loose to provide more drape to the fabric)
I am quite taken by any combination of stripes and I love it when colour seems to give a whole new and unexpected shape to a project.
I am also very interested in everything related to seamless construction, not really because I hate seaming so much... it is just that knitting becomes much more interesting when it gets three-dimensional!
Like sculpting with yarn!!!
