Making Tracks Jumper

£6.50

I am a huge fan of slip stitch knitting. I love colourwork, but stranding can be tricky especially when using a bulky yarn and slip stitch is just so clever!  It is knitted from the top down with simple increases at the raglan shoulders. There is no shaping so that the fabric itself does the talking, I’ve kept it loose so that it isn’t cumbersome to wear. The sample shown is very cropped. You can make it as long as you want (I’ve included guidance below).
Yarn quantities are for the cropped version shown. If you are going to add considerable length you will likely need a skein extra of each colour. 
Sizes: XS/S (M/L, XL/XXL) The sweater is designed with lots of positive ease making it loose and boxy.
Finished Garment Measurements: Back of neck to hem: 32, (36, 40cm) 12 ¾ (14, 16”) (or as long as you want) Sleeve underarm: 31 (35, 39) 12” (14 , 15 ½ ”) Chest circumference: 96cm (112cm , 128cm) 38”( 44, 50½ ”) Tension: 10.5 sts and 20 rows to 10cm (4”) over pattern

Washing
Plump Superchunky and Plump DK are made from the highest quality superfine merino and baby alpaca.  These really are special and luxurious fibres and should be treated carefully!  Having said that both yarns are suitable for delicate hand washing.  Use a specialist detergent and do not agitate or twist the fibres to retain the gorgeous softness and shape of your garment.

Shedding
Because of the roving nature of our yarns (they are single ply, rather than tightly twisted), some shedding may occur.  The best way to deal with this is spray your finished garment with water and leave to dry flat, naturally before the first wearing.  This sets the fibres and should stop any problems.  If you want any further advice just drop us a line at info@mrsmoon.co.uk

Using your yarn
All our yarn comes in skeins.  Before using you need to wind the skein into a ball or you will get into an awful tangled mess!  If you are not sure how to do this you can watch our video here!
