The Rudolph Jumper is written to suit babies and young children up to age 5, and is a really fun challenge for the holiday season.

I used Bendigo Woollen Mills cotton 8ply as my main color for our Australian summer christmas time, but their luxury 8ply would be beautiful for cold weather.
To obtain the colors I needed I use BWM luxury 8ply for the reindeer giving him a warm feel.
Any 8ply fiber can be used for this pattern.

There are some basic colorwork techniques used for Rudolph’s face, colored bobbles and little hearts around the neck. In general, the unused color is floated intermittently behind your work, and the face color is not carried through the main color so that there is less tangling and no visible lines of contrasting colors through the front.

Single crochets (US) are used throughout the body and the sleeves are made up of half double crochets.

I’ve included charts of the back and front of Rudolph, and other details for extra help.
