Christmas in Shetland Jumper – Project Kit
Designed for us by Walaa Emad Christmas in Shetland is a top down colourwork jumper with a contiguous method construction. Knitted in our Shetland Coffee range 4-ply. It has a folded collar which adds an extra touch of style and warmth to the design, while the contiguous method ensures a seamless and polished finish. The jumper gives off a subtle Christmas vibe which makes it perfect for the holiday season, while also being a versatile enough garment to wear all year round.
The design uses 4 contrast colours which allows for endless possibilities when it comes to personalising it and making it look more christmassy, autumnal, or suitable for any season you like
When choosing a size, choose the one that has the closest shoulder width to yours/ the recipient to ensure a good fit
Your kit will arrive in one of our Blacker Yarn fabric tote bags, and will contain 7-9 skeins of yarn depending on the size ordered. The jumper in our photos is knitted in Espresso as main shade, with Flat White, Mocha, Cappuccino and Latte, but you can pick from any of our lovely shades for your kit.
