A Jumper for Ali PDF Machine Knitting Pattern - Shoplivepages::jquery();?>
This listing is for a PDF pattern only
Ali, my eldest, asked me to make her a not too boxy jumper which slid off her shoulders and had a curved front which touched just below the waist, shorter than the back, bracelet length sleeves. This is the result! If you’d prefer a comfy jumper but without the front curve just follow the directions for the back up to the front neck shaping instead.
There are endless possibilities for change, longer body, shorter sleeves.
An optional downward curve can be added to the back so the line curves from front to back
The curved front, neckline and shoulders are all worked using short rows; however, the neckbands are knitted on after the shaping, making life less complicated and giving superb results
The sleeves are picked up from the edges of the body and knitted down towards the cuff
Worn with 10-15 cms (4-6 inches) of positive ease this jumper is fun to make and wear!
All shaping is fully charted; I find this makes it far easier to see where I am in the pattern and the charts are all on separate pages so you can just print off the size you require
This pattern has been vigorously tested by three lovely machine knitters offering various abilities, I particularly wanted newbie machine knitters to test the pattern as well as knitters with experience, because I felt that useful questions would be asked and I have answered them to the best of my ability in the pattern
