The Sailor Breton is a classic striped jumper inspired by the timeless French Breton-sweater, or as the French themselves call it, the Marinière or Tricot Ravé. Originally worn by the French navy and later popularized in the 1920s and 1930s, today the Breton is a timeless staple.
The Coco Breton is worked top down with an elegant subtle boat neck, tailored shoulders that have slight puff, and a decorative rib at the hems. The sleeves can be worked ¾ or full length.

NOTE ON AVAILABLE SIZES - if you want to knit this, or any of my patterns, in a larger size than I currently have published, please get in touch! The only reason it is not available in larger sizes is I couldn’t get testknitters for those sizes, and I don’t want anyone to pay for a pattern and knit a size thats not been tested. So if you would like to (test)knit this - or any of my patterns! - in a larger size than is currently available, drop me a message and I’ll send you the pattern for free!
