Vellamo Jumper – by Francesca Hughes

£7.00

The jumper is knit flat in pieces before picking up stitches for the neckband which is worked in the round. Maintain 1 selvedge stitch at each edge of garment piece by slipping the first stitch of every row purlwise with yarn in back. Not including the selvedge stitches, the first and the last stitch of every row are knit on the RS and purled on the WS to make a neat seaming line at each edge. The coloured cap on the sleeve starts where the coloured chevron stripe across the front starts.
