This instant downloadable PDF knitting pattern is the perfect way to get knitting in the round! Knit purely on circular needles means that there is no sewing up for this pattern, which means you can wear your jumper straight away…

This jumper is so comfortable to wear and goes with everything. It has a slight cinched in waist and gentle balloon sleeves, and fits true to size. The pattern covers sizes 6-28 and you can choose what length you want to knit to. We’ve knit it in ultra cropped and waist-length but feel free to knit longer – you’ll just need more yarn.

This pattern is a great introduction to circular knitting if you’ve not done it before, and is a straightforward pattern using just knit & purl and M1 (make 1) which is all explained in the ‘how to knit’ guide included with your pattern.


Small (UK 6-10): 48cm wide approx

Medium (UK 12-16): 57cm wide approx

Large (UK 18-22): 65cm wide approx

Extra Large (UK 24-28): 72cm wide approx

You decide on the length you would like.

You can now choose to have your yarn in a hank or a ball!

Our Great Balls of Yarn are beautifully wound so you can start knitting straight away. Instead of spending your valuable time winding them yourself when you could be starting on your latest project, or having the worry of tangling up while you’re knitting, these balls are expertly and beautifully wound by us, for you.

Each hank/ball is around 200g (and 130m) and is best knit on 10mm-15mm needles.

If you choose to stick with hanks of yarn, most of our customers find it easier to wind them before knitting. Snip the ties holding the hank together and you’ll find the end of the yarn. Pop it over the back of a chair, a door handle or your knees and wind into a ball, before starting your knitting.

We think you'll love these too.
