What you need to know

Suitable for advanced beginners, Jacinta Bowie’s jumper pattern will teach you how to moss stitch, how to rib stitch and much more.

Cables and twists aplenty have been expertly combined in this duo of hearts, with a large design flanked by a smaller column on each side. The main background is reverse stocking, with short batwing ‘sleeves’ in moss stitch for extra pizzazz. Choose to work from the charts or the written instructions, and consider using a lifeline – just in case!

Top knit tips

Ideally your cable needle will be the same size as your main needle. If you don’t have one the same, go smaller rather than larger to avoid stretching these stitches.

A lifeline is a real help if you are tackling a pattern that requires concentration. Thread a length of smooth yarn that is wider than your project and thinner than your project yarn onto a tapestry needle. Run the tapestry needle through all of the stitches on the needle, but not through any stitch markers, making sure you don’t split or miss stitches. Check you have every stitch by pulling the lifeline taut so it shows up under the stitches on the needle. Carry on knitting (avoiding the lifeline). Check your stitches every few rows and rethread your lifeline. If you do make a mistake, you can remove your knitting needle and undo your work to this point. Make sure your knitting needle tip follows the lifeline through every stitch, so you can carry on again from here.
