Dounduff

This pattern is part of Lost in the Woods – a collection of 12 patterns by three designers – 6 garments, 6 accessories – inspired by the forests we love.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Angled lace rings suggest the mystery and magic of an aimless ramble in the woods. Around and around, you may never see the same path twice, yet you know you’re not truly lost.

Enjoy the twists and turns that take you through short row yoke shaping, then proceed down the body in one piece, with optional bust darts. This deceptively simple, gently fitted jumper will embrace you perfectly.

Sizes

Finished bust circumference: 80 (85, 90, 95, 99.5, 104.5, 109.5, 114, 119, 124) cm / 32 (34, 36, 38, 39.75, 41.75, 43.75, 45.5, 47.5, 49.5) in

Shown in size 114 cm / 45.5 in (including large bust darts) with 5 cm / 2 in positive ease at bust.

Yarn

The sample is made using:

Vahva Pirkkalanka (thick) (100 % wool; 170m / 186yds per 100g skein), 5 (5,6,6, 6, 7, 7, 7, 8, 8) skeins in shade 314 Deep Orange.

Or use 800 (840, 880, 940, 1000, 1030, 1100, 1150, 1200, 1240) m / 870 (920, 960, 1030, 1090, 1130, 1200, 1260, 1310, 1360) yds of worsted or light aran weight yarn. I recommend using a yarn with a high wool content that will be durable and will block well.
