For this pattern I used:
Yarn & Amounts: 5(6:6:7:7) 100g hanks of WYS Bluefaced Leicester DK – Undyed (100% BlueFaced Leicester Wool, 225m/246yds per 100g).
*Optional – I used 6g of another shade for the neck edge on the first size.
Gauge (tension): 22 stitches and 40 rows to 10cm/4ins square over garter stitch using 4mm needles.
To Fit Chest (suggested)
Actual Chest Measurement
Length (from shoulder)
My design ideas and advice: This simple garter stitch jumper is inspired by my Fiona Cardigan.
The Fiona Cardigan has become a Purl &Jane classic. It was one of the first designs I created for my Skipton Studio and has been well loved and knitted by many knitters. It’s been lovely to see it become a classic go to cardigan in knitter’s wardrobes. I have a few knitters who tell me they have knitted this pattern in different shades, as they can wear it with everything.
