Crochet Jumper

Last summer I started to make this crochet jumper from the cover of Issue 9 of Simply Crochet magazine. My plan was to finish it for autumn.

I did pretty well with pattern reading (it was a seamless garment and crocheted in the round), but I did get a bit stuck when it came to the sleeves. Luckily Joanne from Not So Grannyย offered her expertise and after a hiatus I finally took it out of the bag and completed it last month.

Here I am this weekend with the completed crochet jumper on. It’s very comfortable and I chose to wear it with some new patterned hareem pants I picked up in Next. Obvs it feels like you are wearing PJs outside but man are they comfy.

It’s the perfect jumper for between seasons and was just right for an evening bike ride with G yesterday.

  1. That is sooooo lovely. Looks nice and light,and that it would pack up quite small. Well done for finishing it. I’ve lost count of how many things I’ve started and not managed to finish! Xx

  2. Hi! I love your jumper. I’m almost done with mine too, the sleeves were a bit of a challenge but after reading it a few times and ‘just starting with it’, it slowly started to make sense. I was just wondering, what yarn and weight/meters vs grams did you use? And did you make the M or L? Thanks a lot!

  3. That jumper looks gorgeous! I’ve looked at that pattern several times but have been a bit scared about trying it – maybe I’ll give it a go! I’ve just made my first top using a really simple pattern from Genuine a Mudpie – patternpiper.com/2014/05/25/ginkgo-crochet-top/

  4. I’m making the same jumper, and am stuck at the sleeves too! When it says ‘make 30 chains on both sides’, I’m not sure how to do this – can you enlighten me?

    1. If I can recall correctly, I think I attached the yarn to the top of the body at the side and then chained 30 stitches. It basically forms the foundation row for your sleeves. I repeated for the other side and then crocheted across the width of the jumper and along the sleeves. Does that make sense? I have to confess the sleeves did leave me a little confused too so I got some help from my crochet teacher!
