Pattern Description from Interweave Knits, Spring 2010:
Liz Nields works the body of the Hopscotch Jumper in two side-to-side pieces that are grafted together for a completely seamless finish. Clever uses of short-rows, gauge differences, and pleats create a full, open skirt and a fitted bodice in the same piece of knitting.

Yarn: Tahki Cotton Classic (100% mercerized cotton; 108 yd [99 m]/50 g): #3528 light bright yellow, 6 (7, 8, 8, 9, 10) skeins.
Needles: Sizes 6 (4 mm), 5 (3.75 mm), and 1 (2.25 mm). Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.
