The Gigi Jumper is a hip-length, drop-sleeve granny jumper designed to make you smile each time you wear it! This cheery make is complete with balloon sleeves and a flattering crew neckline, demonstrating just how versatile the humble granny square can be.

This pattern was created to be a stash-busting project so every colour under the sun will work! Whether you choose a cohesive colour scheme or a total colour-splosion (like me), it’ll be the happiest jumper around. The main colour is used to add length and width to the body and sleeves as well as the neckline, wrist and hem ribbing, so choosing the same colour ensures they blend seamlessly. However, versions with a mix of main colours look absolutely fantastic too!

This is the new and improved version of my original design, so expect even more balloon on those sleeves! It is an intermediate pattern, but I encourage confident beginners to have a go!
