The Lucy Jumper

After making many crochet jumpers, one of my new year’s resolutions (and maybe the the most important one ;)) for 2021 was to start designing jumpers.

Not only did I design two crochet jumpers, I also designed two slipovers and one cardigan. And I’ve got more up my sleeve for 2022 (#punintended)!

The Jumper

The Lucy jumper consists of two identical panels, a back and a front one. You’ll make them from the bottom up.

For the sleeves you’re going to start on the widest part (at the shoulders) and then decrease until you reach the wrist.

This simple construction makes the pattern beginner friendly.

I really, really love the Cluster stitch I used for this jumper. I even managed to design the sleeves with this stitch. They look so sophisticated! Don’t underestimate the little buggers though. They are very time consuming!

The jumper has a loose fit. This makes it ideal to add a few layers in winter.

Yarn selection: Drops Sky

I used Katia Sky for this jumper. Made from a combination of 74% baby alpaca, 8% merino wool and 18% polyamide, Drops Sky is super soft and luxurious. It has a complex tube-like structure that allows the yarn to be lightweight, breathable and very durable.

Make sure to check your gauge while making the sweater. Some people tend to start quite tight and end up making their stitches much looser. Your jumper might get too wide like this.
