The Snowdrift Jumper takes advantage of the fabulous qualities of Excelana yarn to produce a toasty warm jumper with all-over Fair Isle and next-to-no seaming. The body and sleeves are all knitted to the armpits in the round, from the bottom up before being knitted together to form the raglan yoke. A wide, square neckline balances out the patterns for a flattering winter number.
What’s more, the DK weight yarn ensures you won’t spend a whole year knitting it!

This pattern is written for bust measurements 28 (30, 32, 34, 36, 38, 40, 42, 44, 46, 48, 50)“, with zero ease around the bust, so if you’re worried about the stretchiness of your knitting, or if you’re between sizes, go up to a larger size.

The yardage for each colour is:
Total: 941 (1009, 1076, 1143, 1210, 1278, 1345, 1412, 1479, 1547, 1614, 1681) yds
MC yarn: 561 (601, 641, 681, 721, 761, 801, 841, 881, 921, 961, 1001) yds
CC yarn: 344 (368, 393, 417, 442, 466, 491, 515, 540, 564, 589, 613) yds
