Melanie Jumper is a comfy, cosy, everyday jumper. This design is incredibly practical with its fitted cuffs, loose fit and relaxed rib at the neck making it a brilliant jumper for an active child. The design takes inspiration from traditional jumpers from the British Isles, utilising the beautiful stitch patterns in new and interesting ways. The body of the jumper is worked flat in one piece from front edge, over the shoulders and to the back edge. The cuffs and neck ribbing is picked up and worked in the round to finish.

The pattern is also available in a adult's version sized from XS to 5XL. You can find the adult pattern here.
