Samite Jumper – Project Kit
Walaa Emad has designed for us this beautiful Samite Jumper, a gorgeous top down raglan pullover featuring a stunning combination of intricate cables, lace, and texture, using our Samite Silk Blend DK. Your kit will arrive in one of our Blacker Yarn fabric tote bags, with the pattern and 5-9 skeins of Samite depending on the size selected.
You start by shaping the neckline while working flat, then casting on stitches for the centre front and switching to working in the round whilst working raglan increases until underarms where sleeves and body are separate and stitches are casted on for the underarms. The body is worked straight down for a boxy fit in cables, lace and texture until the ribbing where you continue the lace and texture motif on each side and replace the cables with 1×1 half twisted ribbing. The sleeves are worked in the round in stockinette, twisted ribbing and the same lace in texture motif as the body.
The neckband is picked up at the end and worked in 1×1 half twisted ribbing and folded over at the end for a sleek finish. The motifs are charted only, the pattern has different charts for each size.
Our sample is knitted in Galahad shade, but you can select from any of the colours in our range.
