My design idea and advice: This simple striped jumper really puts the jump in jumper! The ridges seem to bounce up and down as.. I imagine…the young wearer jumps about in piles of autumn leaves. There are a few things to keep in mind when knitting this: when measuring the length, don’t stretch it too much…but do bear in mind it will drop a little after washing. Also this garment is designed to be very oversized.
