Pediment Jumper

Job type Test knit
Description

The Pediment jumper has a simple drop-shoulder silhouette; mostly stockinette, with a wedge-shaped section of moss stitch at each side coming up from the hem. It is worked from the bottom up in the round, then separated for the front and back at the armholes. Bot the back and front neck are shaped, and finished with a double neckband that’s folded over and stitched down. The sleeves are picked up and worked in the round from the top down, with decreases to shape them along the length.
