Online KAL Jumper Project


For this Online KAL project, I have chosen a beautiful jumper knitted in the round designed by Purl Soho. If you have never knitted a Top-Down Jumper before, this is a perfect 1st project for you to try.

One of the great things about this technique is that you are able to try on the jumper as you go, therefore enabling you to adjust the final fit. Also as it is knitted in one piece, there are no individual pieces needing to be sewn together at the end!

NB For this project you will need to purchase the pattern directly from Purl Soho for your PDF download. 

I have put together a series of worksheets giving you yarn suggestions and help to explain the different techniques of the jumper for each stage of the project.

We will meet for 5 x 1 hour Zoom sessions (fortnightly, giving you time to knit) and together work through each stage step-by-step. I will be keeping these sessions small (max 5 people) to facilitate help readily giving everybody personal tuition if required.

Alongside the Zoom sessions I will set up an individual Whats App group for the project where I will add mini videos showing you techniques and tips for your jumper and you will be able to share your ongoing progress with each other.
