The Laus Jumper is a compound of softness with its stripes knitted in Top Hair (a mix of kid mohair and silk) and Céleste (alpaca and silk). These two soft, light and ultra-soft wools combine perfectly and form an original tone on tone material. The Laus jumper has a straight and loose fit, covering the hips, with straight sleeves and a rounded neckline. It is the ideal jumper to wear during the cold season over trousers.
The Laus jumper is knitted with needles n°5 (US 8). To make it, you need to know the following techniques:
• Knit knit and purl stitches,
• Change the yarn for the stripes
• Increase and decrease stitches
• Pick up stitches for the neckline
• Bind off and assembly
If you know these basic techniques, you can make this easy knitting design. For beginners, it is necessary to have experience with very simple patterns.
You can combine different colors of the Top Hair with the Céleste to obtain a jumper with darker or lighter shades. To choose your size, if necessary, visit our size guide.
