Click here to watch a fab vid of Sonja and Frankie nattering all about this kit and the different colour combos we’ve selected. 

We now offer handy kits of this pattern. All kits include enough yarn to make this splendid jumper along with the pattern, a shadecard for one of our yarn ranges and a fab project bag to keep it all safe. Happy knitting!  

The Vellamo Jumper pattern is designed by our very own Francesca Hughes. Click here if you’d like to buy just the pattern, without the yarn.
