Vintage knitwear has always been my first love when designing. I love the wearability factor, by which I mean the ability to wear the garment every day. Vintage knitting was meant to be worn, to be used as clothing not art. Something about that tickles me.

This jumper is worked in 4ply weight yarn in a wonderful pastel lilac. It is worked from the bottom up in pieces for stability. The short sleeve and lightweight nature make this a perfect piece for spring and summer. Briar Cliff is also worked with approximately 2.5cm-5cm (1in-2in) of negative ease for a nice tight fit.
