The Penny Jumper is worked from the bottom up in stockinette stitch. The edges are created with a 1x1 twisted rib. The work begins with the body in the round. The stitches are then divided to knit the front and back separately, back and forth. The rounded neckline and sloped shoulders are shaped with a Sloped Bind-Off technique. Following this, the shoulders are sewn together. Stitches are then picked up along the armhole, and the sleeves are worked in the round. Short rows are applied to ensure a good fit for the sleeves. In the end, stitches are picked up and knitted to work the neckline in the round in a 1x1 twisted rib, which is then folded and sewn in place. The construction and unique details of the Penny Jumper result in a polished, well-fitted silhouette.
The pattern includes detailed instructions on beginning the knitting from the middle of the body with a Provisional Cast-on. This feature allows you to continue the work at the end, adjusting the garment length to match your fit preference.

Sizes:

XS / S / M / L / XL / 2XL / 3XL
The Penny Jumper has an oversized, slightly cropped fit and is designed to have approximately 25 cm [9¾ in] of positive ease. This means the garment's measurements will be approximately 25 cm [9¾ in] larger than your actual bust circumference.

The sizes XS / S / M / L / XL / 2XL / 3XL are designed to fit a bust circumference of 80-85 / 85-90 / 90-95 / 95-100 / 100-110 /110-120 / 120-130 cm [31½-33½ / 33½-35½ / 35½-37½ / 37½-39½ / 39½-43¼ / 43¼-47¼ / 47¼-51¼ in].

Before you begin, measure yourself to choose the right size. For example, if your bust circumference is 90 cm [35½ in], you should knit a size M. If you are between sizes, choose your size based on how loose you prefer the sweater to fit. Using the diagram with the finished garment measurements as a reference can be helpful when deciding which size to select.
