Knitted jumpers for women are essential fashion items, especially during winter months, being warm and practical whilst chic, modern and fashionable. Jumpers range from basic and casual to fitted, daring or dressy. Some jumpers are timeless, other jumpers drift in and out of style, while some transform vintage styles or are interpretations of brand new trends. Jumpers have a fascinating history in women’s fashion. Knitting is one of the oldest forms of clothes-making, transformed from a necessity into a craft hobby, first used in Britain to make weatherproof jumpers for fishermen. In the 17th and 18th centuries, snowflakes patterns appeared on jumpers in Northern Europe. When fashion magazines appeared with new designs for jumpers and knitwear, women started knitting their own jumpers. In 1916, Chanel launched sailor cardis and jumpers and brought knitwear into the modern era for women. A jumper-knitting craze followed World War I, 'knitting for victory' inspired several popular songs. Long lean 'jazz jumpers' defined the boyish silhouette of the 'flapper' era. In the 1930s, Fair Isle pattern jumpers were popular, combining colours and small scraps of yarns. Pringle developed knitted twinset jumpers as luxury knitwear in soft colours. In the 1940s, figure-hugging jumpers were highly desirable, with sleeves either short and puffy or long and slender. Dolman and raglan sleeved jumpers were also popular. In the 70s, punks liked to rip and make holes in jumpers and fashion. In the 90s, deconstructed knitwear and androgynous styles of jumpers were the height of style.
