Small girls in large jumpers are just about the cutest sights I’ve ever seen. When my older girl was young there was a period of some years when she refused to wear anything but dresses and large jumpers. This spencer is perfect for just those young girls who prefer wearing tights and large jumpers to anything else. It is reminiscent of a sweatshirt with a pocket and cut-off sleeves.
This pattern is designed for einrúm E+2 yarn or E+4 yarn in four sizes. The spencer is worked in stocking stitch with the body, up to the armholes, worked in the round. The pattern features a border at the sides of the body. Sleeves are worked in the round. Sleeves and body are joined on one circular needle at the armholes and the yoke is worked in the round. The pocket is worked flat separately and fastened to the front of the body.
The gorgeous pattern booklet includes instructions in English, Icelandic and Danish. We love the built in needle gauge!
