A super stylish cropped fitted jumper with 3/4 length sleeves – perfect for Spring layering!

This jumper is knit in the round so it’s perfect if you are an intermediate knitter. It’s knit from the top down with a short roll neck and double ribbed cuffs. It is designed to be fitted and cropped but you can size up if you’d like it baggier – and you can knit it as long as you like.

It is a great lightweight layer knit in our gorgeous merino yarn. Knit it in one colour or use remnants or our box of balls to create a real statement piece.
