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.”

Finished Size: 9¼ (9¾, 10¾, 10¾, 11¼, 11¾)” wide across upper back, to fit chest sizes 21 (23, 26, 26, 28, 30)”. Jumper shown measures 11¼”, modeled on a three-year-old.

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.
Notions Markers (m); stitch holders; waste yarn for provisional CO; tapestry needle.
