Zig Zag Jumper

£6.75

Halfway through this fabulous jumper I thought that it was going to end up looking more at home on the Harry Enfield Show’s early 1990s Scousers than a 2019 sophisticate like myself (!) but I carried on and am so pleased I did! The colours are out there, but you could easily go for more muted tones if you prefer.

I think it would be perfect during a bit of alpine apres-ski or strolling down a wintry King’s Road and will be putting the latter to the test in the near future!

The jumper is worked from the top down and is very quick and simple. The only trickiness is ensuring that you keep the floats nice and neat, especially as the zigzags get bigger. I would, for this reason, recommend knitting the sleeves flat, as it is particularly tricky going down the arms. I’ve mentioned this below. Also, be very careful when securing the carried yarn, try to ensure you never twist yarns in the same place on consecutive rounds or you will get show-through. For these reasons only I would recommend that you have a little experience of colourwork before trying this.

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!
