A Sneak Peek: The Jan Sweater

Just a few of days ago we released this gorgeous pattern to everybody who has pre-ordered A Stitch in Time Volume 2 (and this is the pattern that any new pre-orders will also receive as a PDF). It is called The Jan Sweater.

Susan says: Jan is knitted in Excelana 4 ply using the shade Powdered Egg. The original design is from 1938. It features a classic boat neck and deep ribbed welt. The lace pattern is very easy to follow particularly as the body is unshaped between the welt and the underarm.

On this jumper, the front and the back are worked exactly the same (as are the arms, of course). The lace pattern is easy to follow and the sweater is very flattering, with a boat neck. Jan is a good project for people knitting their first garment, or who have not yet dipped their needles into vintage knitting. If you'd like to see some more specifics of the pattern and are a member of Ravelry, the project page is here.
Don't forget that you can still pre-order A Stitch in Time volume 2 from the knitonthenet shop and recieve:

A signed copy of A Stitch in Time Volume Two

 for £30 + £4 P&P to anywhere in the world.

Happy knitting
