The MESH jumper is a simple, boxy jumper in a lace pattern. In summer it can be worn in cotton over a top, in winter it can be worn in soft virgin wool over a longsleeve or a blouse.
The jumper is knitted from top to bottom in a lace pattern. First knit the back with increases for the shoulder slope, then knit the left and right front pieces. The back and front pieces are knitted in rows until the end of the armholes. Then join the two pieces for the body and work in rounds. For the sleeves, pick up stitches from the side edges of the front and back pieces and work in rounds as well. Finally, the neckline is edged with a ribbed cuff.
Techniques used: Hole pattern, double stitches (kfb/kbf), decreases slanted left and right, bind off using the 'Italian method'.
Each yarn kit contains the amount of yarn needed to complete the project in the selected size.

The jumper should have a range of movement ('positive ease') of about 15 cm to the body. If you like it very loose and oversized, you can allow for a little more 'positive ease'. At a height of 1.76 m and a chest circumference of 88 cm, I wear the light jumper here in size M, for example, and the dark jumper with a little less 'positive ease' in size S.
