Should be a straight-forward job for any half-competent seamstress.

I think depends if the cuff is part of the knit or has been applied on, if applied on then yes potentially could be shortened by taking it off and moving it up, again this would depend on the structure of the knit in question and if the person doing the alteration has the right tools.

in a nut shell if its a cut and sewn knit maybe, if its fully fashioned (all one piece linked together) then i think less likely

Is it best to dry clean knitwear? I've hand-washed in the past and it's a ballache to dry them and I'm sure I've messed up the shape of some jumpers.

Swede says you can put them in the wash so I'd just do that

I do like this but might be too much of a statement piece. Plus, not at oer 800 smackers.

Bought some William Lockie rollnecks in navy and beige / mushroom kind of colour. The more substantial 'alain' model seems to be around this year, previously just seemed to be at Fransboone

Looking for a black cable knit fisherman style jumper, preferably a bit oversized and long, anyone seen anything that fits that?

I have one of these Inverallans which I love: https://www.endclothing.com/gb/inverallan-16p-cable-crew-knit-16p-cc-blk.html

Look at the measurements - they're surprisingly fitted for a traditional cable knit. So you could probably size up more than you'd think for the look you're after
