The tundra jumper is a visual translation of our arctic experience in Iqaluit. The colours and motives are derived from our walks on the frozen beach, snow flakes we catch on our sleeves and the northern lights we see from our bedroom window.

The pattern is available in both men and women sizes, and have an inclusive sizing chart that ranges from xs to 5xl.

The tundra jumper features no waist shaping and is meant to be a boxy sweater. It comes with a positive ease of 2” / 5.1 cm. It is perfect for any occasion - whether you’re out on the land or keeping warm by the fireplace. You can throw it on with a pair of jeans, leggings or under a pair of overalls.

It is knitted from bottom up and in the round exclusively. The body will first be knitted while both the sleeves are knitted separately with increases throughout. The sleeves will then be joined to the body to create a seamless construction. The yoke features stranded colourwork all the way to the neckline.

It is knitted in istex lettlopi. The colour combinations used for the women’s and men’s sweater in the photos are as follows:
