Tunisian Jacket Baby Sweater
High mountain tops covered in snow, icy wind swept peeks. Rosy cheeks wrapped up in warm coverings. This little Tunisian jacket is a reflection of far off country sides and a time reminiscent of yesteryear’s. This pattern is what Full Knitted Jacket is all about! Nordic inspired clothing that will whisk you away in spirit to another land.
You can find pre-made or made to order sweaters in my etsy shop. Note yarns are just suggested choices and should give you an idea what weights (10 ply) and fibers lend themselves well.
This little sweater is perfect for keeping your little one toasty warm in the cool weather. Constructed using the Tunisian crochet technique this jacket has a wonderful thick warm fabric that will keep your love extra cuddly warm, offering a unique look, texture, and drape that neither traditional crochet or knitting can offer. This whole sweater is worked as one piece with big easy to grasp buttons at the neck for added ease of dressing. This sweater is loose fitting for ease of movement and extra soft and cuddly. This project is a quick and easy weekend knit. A perfect choice for a first Tunisian project.
My little Babushka Bear is just in love with these sweaters! Another favorite around our house!

Some basic Tunisian crochet skills will be needed to work this sweater; I suggest these links for help if you are new to this technique.
There are many other tutorials and videos out there that could be very helpful. These just happen to be two of my favorites. I am not affiliated with these sites in any way.
