THE ALEXA JUMPER - A KNITTING PATTERN

I  am so happy to finally be able to share the Alexa Jumper Pattern with you! 
It's a pattern I have been working on through the colder days and finally managed to write it up and share it with you!

The jumper is really comfy and cozy and would definitely make a lovely wear during the colder days of spring and fall! It's designed in two pieces, front and back; the sleeves are knitted separately and then sewn in place! The jumper also has a cowl which is knitted in the end using raised stitches from the neck band! It's knitted in Stockinette Stitch and the sleeves and cowl are knitted in simply ribbing!

I chose to make it in a navy colorway but I am dreaming of making a grey one for the next season! I used Alize Lanagold Classics in colorway (82) and  US 10 (6 mm) circular needle, and US 10 (6 mm) straight needles for the sleeves! The jumper could be made in any medium, worsted weight yarn!

Basically it's a fun pattern and as not a lot of shaping is involved I would recommend it for beginners as well! You can find the pattern on Etsy & Ravelry to get yours! 

If you decide to give it a go, I would love to see your version of this pattern! 
Be sure to share your photos with #ltblogged or #littlethingsblogged for a chance to be featured on my Instagram + Facebook so I can see your beautiful work!
