Esme Jumper Knitting Kit
Esme is the statement piece of our new collection! A stunningly beautiful jumper with cable knit detail, gorgeous shaping, flattering neckline and long sleeves. The pleated hem is emphasized with textured panels creating simple sophistication and an hourglass figure and the neckline is enhanced further with a wonderful, princess style, fold-back collar.
Don’t take our word for it see Susan’s blog entitled “Wow! Did you really knit that?” . As she says, it’s a phrase she has been basking in hearing for the last couple of weeks
This isn’t all Esme can offer you; the pattern also includes a sleeveless and collarless version so that a significantly different garment can be made from the same design. (See Esme Sleeveless Top)
