Cunningham is a knitting pattern for a smart Jumper with a fair bit of wearing ease (approx. 28cm) a back split for relaxed fit and a high neck in four adult sizes. Note that this is a design that is worked on circular needles in the round particularly the sleeves and lower body (which is then split to work the upper parts of front and back backwards and forwards flat). Finally the neck band is picked up and knit - again in the round. Be sure to check you have circular and/or Double Pointed needles (DPNs) at hand.
Skill Level: Advanced- read this as a bit of patience and concentration, no matter what skill level you are at, knit in the round on circular and or DPN needles.
