Marginalia is a jumper worked top-down with raglan sleeves and decorative slip-stitch pattern around the hem and wrists. It is worked seamlessly in the round with slight waist shaping. The jumper is worked in Blacker Yarns Lyonesse DK, a wool/linen blend which feels amazing when worn.
The jumper has a relaxed fit but, owing to the nature of the yarn, it is designed with some negative ease as the yarn relaxes over time.
The pattern is fully written out with no charts. It includes a schematic and a section on how to raise the back for a good fit.
Marginalia is inspired by how we read books, and our desire to create.
Suitable for adventurous beginners/intermediate knitters.
