This reversible jumper, with a stranded zig-zag/chevron pattern, is perfect for those of us who love to show off the “wrong side” of our knits - though it looks just as good right side out too!

This sweater is knitted bottom up in the round up to the armholes, where you split to work flat. It uses an all-over stranded pattern, with a faux seam at the sides, into which the waist shaping is worked.

This pattern is written in 9 sizes, with a finished measurement of between 31”/80cm and 64”162cm bust, designed to be worn with a little positive ease. It’s shown here on the very lovely rockandpurl in the second size. A detailed schematic is included in the pattern to help you choose the perfect size for you.

I’m holding a knit-a-long here. Come join us!

I’ve just launched a hat which uses this pattern and shaping techniques on a small scale. If you buy this sweater pattern, you will get the hat pattern for free.
