This simple yoked jumper pattern is available in a range of sizes to fit from aged one year to eight years of age. The garment body is knitted in the round from the bottom up. The sleeves are knitted separately then joined to the body to form the yoke which is then also knitted in the round. The Christmas tree and reindeer motifs are worked using Fair Isle stranded knitting. Decreases are worked on the yoke to create a comfortably fitting neckline for all sizes. The pattern is knitted in 4 ply (fingering) yarn and comes with a combination of both written and charted instructions. As this pattern is knitted almost entirely in the round there is a minimal amount of finishing.
