Customer gallery – focus on the Esme Jumper

One of our all time favourite designs is the Esme Jumper. A wonderfully flattering jumper based on traditional aran knitwear using flattering features sucha as a square neckline with a princess collar and a fitted waist with a peplum.
Esme is one of our favourites and also one of yours! We get so many pictures of you wearing your beautiful versions of this designs and we thought it would be nice to share some of them with you!


Tatiana lives in Belarus and has knitted Esme in a fantastic teal colour. We are loving the fabulous styling too! Is that a knitted belt?


Elena has knitted Esme for her mum. Her mum made it first but it came up a little on the small side, so Elena came to the rescue and knitted it again! This time it fits really perfectly! Great job. Elena has knitted the Esme Jumper in Purl Alpaca Designs ivory yarn.


Here is a fabulous version knitted in our yarn in the colour Champagne. We think the colour and the style really suits Eva! We also love the bracelet length sleeves Eva has made when she found out she was going to be just a tiny bit short of yarn! It’s always amazing to see what alterations you make to our designs!


Susan has also made Esme in ivory. Susan always writes really informative blog posts on her knitting adventures and here is her story about knitting Esme!

Esme is a fabulous winter project to be worn in spring when it is just getting too warm to wear a jacket! Are you planning on casting on for one?

    Hi Sally Anne, sorry, just seen this, I hope you’ve been answered elsewhere, but if not, work 3 rows as set, means do the same for the next 3 rows as written in the pattern that you’ve just done. Hope this helps, if not, please email us! Happy knitting!
