Celebrate the Bright Young Things, the Roaring 20s, a decade welcoming and exploring change, and a time of joyful elegance! I was inspired by one of the iconic Art Deco buildings - the Columbia Eastern in Los Angeles. May we hail the challenges of our 20s with the same vigour!

This is a pattern for a jumper worked from the top down and in the round, with a circular yoke, using the stranded colourwork technique. Plötulopi is held single for this project.

Please see schematic for all approximate finished sizes. Plötulopi is not usually worn against the skin and you may wish to work a size or two up from your actual measurements. Feel free to make any adjustments, as needed, for best fit.
