Your little fairy will be ready to flit amongst the flowers in this pretty jumper. Designed by Lijuan Jing, it uses Jojoland's Carnation, a blend of 75% cotton and 25% acrylic. The knitting begins at the lower edge, as the lower cable is worked from a provisional cast-on. The two ends of the cable strip are joined together using the Kitchener stitch and then stitches are picked up along one edge and knit upward in the round for the skirt of the jumper. Stitches are divided at the armholes to work the front and back separately and then a similar cable pattern is used to make the straps. The finished chest measurements are 19 (24, 29)". The jumper can be machine washed and dried flat.
The kit includes the pattern and the yarn. For this project you will also need:
- single point needles in US size 6 (OR SIZE NEEDED TO OBTAIN GAUGE)
- stitch markers
- stitch holder
- tapestry needle
