Needles: 3 mm / US 2½ knitting needles
3.5 mm / US 4 knitting needles
3 mm / US 2½ circular needle, 40 cm (16”) length
Always use a needle size that will result in the correct gauge after blocking.

Notions: 2 stitch markers, stitch holders Notes: The jumper is knit in pieces before seaming and picking up stitches for the neckband which is worked in the round. The hip pleats are set after the final blocking process.
Maintain 1 selvedge stitch at each edge of garment piece by slipping the first st of every row. The first and the last sts (not counting selvedge sts) are knit on the RS and purled on the WS to make a construction line at each seam. Stay mindful of keeping the correct stitch count when following shaping as instructed.
