Grr! Wild Thing jumper in issue 113 of Knit Now magazine

I am delighted to share a new design with you today, and doubly delighted that it has the starring role on the cover of Knit Now! Let me introduce, the Wild Thing jumper.


Animal prints have been everywhere for the past few months, and here's my take on the trend: the Wild Thing jumper. The jumper features a large leopard-print heart on the front. You can either make the jumper in subtle, animal-inspired tones, or go all out and choose something much brighter and bolder. I've gone for a combination of bold and subtle: animal tones for the heart and a bright coral for the jumper itself.


The jumper is knitted in pieces that are then seamed, and the heart is created using a combination of intarsia, stranded colourwork and duplicate stitch. The neckband is added in the round once the jumper has been seamed.


I've used Deramores Studio Aran to knit the Wild Thing jumper, a 100% acrylic yarn that is plump and lovely to work with.

Want to knit your own Wild Thing jumper? You can find the pattern in issue 113 of Knit Now magazine, which is in stores now. If you can't find a copy locally, you can order a print copy from the MoreMags website, or a digital edition from PocketMags.


If you’d like to add the pattern to your Ravelry queue or favourites, you can find the Ravelry pattern page here.
