Niobe Lace Top Jumper
Although appearing seamless, Niobe has one grafted join (which can be sewn if you prefer) and only the underarm seams to sew up. The moss stitch hem against the simplicity of the stocking stitch body has an effortless elegance which combined with the beautiful lace stitching on the yoke and sleeves is evocative of romantic evenings, cuddled up by the fireside with a loving companion (it doesn’t have to be a man, it could be a cat or dog or alpaca…).

Knitted cast on, moss stitch, stocking stitch, sskpo (slip 2 knitwise together, k1, pass slipped sts over) and yarn over
