Tesserae Jumper

On Sale
Added to cart
This is a pattern for a tunisian crochet jumper using tunisian mosasic techniques.

The Tesserae Jumper is a top down jumper worked in the round in Tunisian Crochet. A geometric mosaic pattern is worked around the yoke, the base of the torso and the base of the sleeves. All the cuffs on the jumper are made in standard crochet. The fit of the jumper is customisable with steps in the pattern included for how to do this.

14 sizes available - women’s XS to 5XL and men’s S-2XL. See the attached chart image for the planned measurements of this jumper (blocked measurements). Positive ease is planned between 10cm/4” - 15cm/6”.

Fingering weight yarn in at least 2 colours. Aim for yarn with a meterage of 400m per 100g. You will need a main colour and at least one contrast colour. If using variegated yarn, keep it subtle as a busy yarn will hide the mosaic pattern. Semi solids and tonals are highly recommended.
See the attached chart image for meterage required per size. Adding to the planned length will require more yarn.

A cabled tunisian hook for working in the round on all tunisian portions - I used a 5.5mm hook. Testers ranged between 4.5mm and 6mm hooks. It is very important to make a gauge swatch, block, dry and measure accurately before choosing your hook for the project. Pointy hooks will be easier to use than blunt hooks.
A regular crochet hook 3 sizes (1.5mm) smaller than hook used for tunisian.

Skills required
Crochet ribbing is back loop single crochet (US blsc).
Tunisian Crochet stitches used: tunisian simple stitch (tss), tunisian extended stitch (tes), increases and decreases. None of these stitches are “hard” to do but the mosaic will require the maker’s full attention. It is easy to accidentally skip an increase or a tes which will put mistakes in the mosaic pattern.
Working in the round with a cabled hook - links provided to several techniques.
Slip stitch cast on armpit bridge. Videos are provided with the pattern for just about all the techniques required.

How the pattern is structured
The mosaic is charted - a chart and the written translation of every row is provided.
Schematic, videos, written instructions.
Tables provided to break up the instructions of some of the ‘trickier’ steps.
