Pattern Notes
This jumper is worked in the round from the bottom up with steeks added at the armholes. The front and back sections are grafted together at the shoulders then the sleeves are picked up and worked downwards in the round. Finally stitches are picked up around the neckline and a ribbed turtle (polo) neck is knitted upwards in the round.

Each size includes full length charts and corresponding steek charts.The size shown in the photographs is the first size worn on both the male and female models - on the male model it is worn with a quintessential ‘vintage’ fit. For a more standard fit, it is suggested that you choose a size with approximately 5-10cm (2-4in) of positive ease at the chest.
