This knitting kit contains everything you need to create a beautiful stylish cropped cable knit jumper.
** Due to current circumstances, our knitting needles are currently out of stock so any orders of kits with needles included will be delayed. Our suppliers are working hard to get them to us, but we are unable to give a time frame on this. If you would like to order your kit without needles it will be despatched much quicker – a quick search on both Ebay and Amazon bring up plenty of 12mm needles that are available to order so you could source them elsewhere. **
This jumper is so soft, comfortable to wear and is reversible too (wear it back to front or front to back to show off the different cable designs.)
Which colour will you choose from? I have a whole range of soft and hypoallergenic 'Super Chunky' Merino wool - do you want to go for soft natural white or bright colourful pink. I've seen this jumper created in so many different colours, each one is as beautiful as the other, so the hardest thing about this knit kit is deciding on which colour to choose!
This jumper will look amazing dressed down with your favourite jeans or dress it up with a pleated satin skirt and heeled boots - wear it your own individual way!
The high neck and soft hypoallergenic wool will keep you warm and cosy all year round. With a ribbed hem and cuffs finishing off the design, this gorgeous loose fitting design will be sure to make a statement however you wear it.
Based on my original Cable Knit Jumper Kit, this is an amended version of that popular design. Slightly Cropped with three quarter length sleeves and a higher neck, this jumper kit is perfect for the cooler Spring and Autumn nights.
This knitting kit provides everything you need to create this beautiful jumper and is simple enough for a confident knitting beginner. However it is also enjoyable for those with a bit more experience in knitting, as it does require some cabling and a small amount of shaping. All the instructions are included and are easy to follow.
All you need to decide is which colour you are going to choose for your kit - I have a stunning range of super chunky merino yarn for you to decide from, will you go bright or stick to a classic neutral?
It should take about 15-20 hours to complete the jumper.
Stitches required are Knit, Purl, Cables + some basic shaping.
Your kit comes beautifully packaged in one of our environmentally friendly LAD bags. Perfect for keeping your knitting project all in one place and once you finish your knitting you can then use your bag to store and organise toys, accessories or use as a travel bag.

Small: UK 8-10 (56cm wide x 40cm long)
Medium: UK 12-14 (60cm wide x 50cm long)
Large: UK 16-18 (66cm wide x 50cm long)
The jumper is designed to be loose fitting and baggy. If you want it to be more fitted it's best to size down - for instance a medium would fit size 16-18 nicely as a tighter fitting sweater and the large would fit someone who's a size 22 just not so baggy.
