My design ideas and advice: This is my take on a Christmas Jumper! I love this very simple reindeer pattern, which I originally designed for some Christmas socks, a Christmas hat and Christmas mittens. I loved him so much, I made him larger and put him on the front of my jumper, with one small addition-a shiny red nose!
