Rainbow Jumper


This is a super simple, super gorgeous jumper. Great for a first jumper project. I always find working with stripes speeds my knitting up no end and
I’m sure you’ll find the same – it knits up in a jiffy! 
The jumper is knitted from the top down and uses really simple increases which give that lovely swirl pattern at the yoke. I think it looks just lovely.
When thinking about you colour choices, the main decision is which colour do you want your jumper to start and end with. I’ve gone for Blueberry 
Muffin in this one. To be honest, when I first put these colours together I didn’t think they went together that well, but I persevered and I’m just so pleased with how it’s turned out.

You can obviously have fun with the stripes – do them varying thicknesses or reflect them rather than repeat them. Just make sure you make a note of what you do so you can repeat the same pattern down the sleeves.

Plump Superchunky and Plump DK are made from the highest quality superfine merino and baby alpaca.  These really are special and luxurious fibres and should be treated carefully!  Having said that both yarns are suitable for delicate hand washing.  Use a specialist detergent and do not agitate or twist the fibres to retain the gorgeous softness and shape of your garment.

Because of the roving nature of our yarns (they are single ply, rather than tightly twisted), some shedding may occur.  The best way to deal with this is spray your finished garment with water and leave to dry flat, naturally before the first wearing.  This sets the fibres and should stop any problems.  If you want any further advice just drop us a line at [email protected]

Using your yarn
All our yarn comes in skeins.  Before using you need to wind the skein into a ball or you will get into an awful tangled mess!  If you are not sure how to do this you can watch our video here!
