Sloppy, Boxy Sweater


A funky combination of the sloppy Joe and boxy jumper with the the addition of a drop shoulder.  This jumper is done on even thicker needles (15mm!) than its sisters the Chunky Boxy Jumper and the Sloppy Joe, and because the needles are large it knits up extremely quickly. Unlike the other two jumpers this is not knitted in the round, the front and back are simply rectangles with the only shaping being at the neckline, it is then seamed at the shoulders and part-way along the side seams. Each sleeve is picked-up and knitted, and then you are done!  Karen wrote the pattern and knitted this in less than 24 hours...

Our lovely model Florence is a size 8 and is wearing the small size.

You will need: For the small size; 3 MC and 2 CC.  For medium; 4 MC and 3 CC and for the Large size; 5 MC and 4 CC. Colours shown: MC Blueberry Muffin, CC Rhubarb Crumble.  To buy the yarn go to Plump.

You will also need 15mm and 12mm (for the rib) needles, and a small 12mm circular for the neck band.

Shown in blueberry muffin (MC) and rhubarb crumble (CC)

All our patterns are available as PDF downloads only.

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!
