This beautiful jumper features a Feather and Fan lace pattern with a Butterfly Lace stitch on the sleeves. The elegant stripe pattern on the body is worked in five colours of Excelana 4ply. The flattering key hole front opening is encircled by a sewn-on scarf to complete this 1930s style jumper.

The body is knitted from the bottom up with front and back pieces knitted separately and then sewn together, with raglan shaping worked at armholes. The elbow length sleeves are knitted separately.
