Jump Suit in ggh Wollywasch - Rebecca Knit Kit
1970s vintage style jumpsuits are back - but with a 21st century twist!
Forget the scratchy wool and nasty acrylic feel of 1970s knitwear - this gorgeous and super-comfy body suit with long sleeves and short legs is worked in ggh Wollywasch, a beautifully soft quality yarn made from 100% super wash wool.
The waist ribbing and the front buttons give it a feminine touch. The shoulders are accentuated with stripes that are worked across the main body and the arm caps.
You cast on with waste yarn and work the top from the waist up, then add the trousers working top down.
You could work the top as a short jumper only by using a standard cast on.
If you would like to make this in a different colour, please get in touch before ordering - we are happy to put together a personalised knit kit for you (ggh Wollywasch only and subject to availability).
