Cropped Cable Knit Jumper Kit
This kit contains everything you need to knit yourself up a beautiful cropped chunky cable jumper! An adaptation of the original Cable knit jumper but with a few style changes. This cropped jumper has the same amazing cable down the front and symmetrical cable detail on the back but is cropped, with a higher neck and three quarter length sleeves.
Really comfortable and easy to wear this jumper look great worn with high waisted jeans, trousers or skirts - The chunkiness juxtaposes so well with a soft and fluid skirt to really emphasis the size of the yarn. The high neck is so cosy and the shorter sleeves and cropped length make it an ideal piece for Spring and Autumn.
Choose your favourite colour from the whole range of soft and hypoallergenic 'Super Chunky' Merino wool - go for soft natural white or bright colourful pink - I went for light grey as it goes with practically everything in my wardrobe.
The high neck and soft hypoallergenic wool will keep you warm and cosy all year round. With a ribbed hem and cuffs finishing off the design, this gorgeous loose fitting design will be sure to make a statement however you wear it.
This kit is simple enough for a confident beginner, but is also enjoyable for those more experienced knitters - using mainly basic stitches of knit and purl with a repetitive cable and a small amount of shaping.
I now have a Facebook group for those of you who have bought a kit or pattern from me, so please do come and show me your knits!

The jumper is designed to be loose fitting and baggy. If you want it to be more fitted it's best to size down - for instance a medium would fit size 16-18 nicely as a tighter fitting sweater and the large would fit someone who's a size 22 just not so baggy.

Although we check and double check all patterns as thoroughly as possible, occasionally a mistake/misprint slips through the net, normally it’s obvious so shouldn’t hinder your project but just in case it’s best to mention it. Please feel free to let me know if you spot anything (unless it’s already listed below) We regularly reprint patterns to keep up with any mistakes but below are any corrections we’ve ever made on this pattern:
