This jumper was designed with my grandson in mind, but it would look fabulous on a girl too. It is top down, the main part of the body is in one piece with no seaming. The arms and neck are knitted using short rows. I added a hood as I like to think of this as a child surfer’s garment.

The body is knitted in Sirdar Snuggly Baby Crofter and the arms and hood are knitted in the plain Sirdar Snuggly. This gives a vest type impression when it is finished. Why not experiment with different yarns, including plain and patterned?

The whole jumper uses between 130g and 350g of DK baby yarn, of which approx 1/3 is the Crofter yarn. This is a lovely yarn which gives the effect of fair isle, without having to work with multiple colours.
