Upon hearing that MOST’s Holiday Adopt-A-Family program which has brought some much needed holiday cheer to nearly 200 families of multiples and 1000 children in need in it’s 9 years of existence was underfunded to the point of perhaps not being able to continue to operate past it’s 10th year, I thought you and I could do something about that through our love of knitting ;0)

In the spirit of giving, I designed this trio of sweet seamless yoked sweaters with holiday-themed finger puppet buddies and pockets for the benefit of MOST’s holiday Adopt-A-Family program.

The pattern includes instructions to knit the sweater for babies and toddlers as well as instructions for all three holiday-themed pockets (north pole, ski slopes, and gift box) and finger puppet buddies (elf, penguin, and snowman).

Hint! The pockets and buddies are also perfectly sized to adorn my Buddy Bags too if you need a quick knit.
