Niobe Jumper Knitting Pattern
The structure of this fabulous jumper is an art form in itself. Although appearing seamless, there is one grafted join on the Niobe Jumper (which can be sewn if you prefer) and only the underarm seams to do 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…).
