A jumper with all the good things we love in knitting! A little bit of Japanese lace (which knits up really quickly), stripes, a really cool construction and at the end a plain stockinette section for mindless TV knitting.
Add to that a great and comfortable fit, and the chance to endlessly play with your yarn until you find the perfect color combination.

The instructions for the lace inserts are charted and fully written too.
