Santa Baby Hat & Sweater

I know how you all secretly love a good Christmas jumper!  I have been a busy girl creating three such delights for your little people.

Today I would like to introduce you to…… drum roll please…

This is a traditional style drop shoulder sweater, worked from the bottom up.  It is a very straight forward knit and would suit a keen beginner.  If you would like to make life even easier for yourself,  I recommend that you swiss darn the buckle details on, rather than intarsia.

The pattern is written for chest sizes 43, 45.5, 48, 53 and 55cm.  Which is approximately ages six months to 3 years.

This little chap looks super cute in his matching Santa hat.  The hat is worked in the round from the bottom up with simple shaping.  The pattern is written for three sizes (35.5, 40.5 & 45.5cm circumference)

You can find the pattern inside the Hand Knit Christmas supplement which is free with issue 125 of Simply Knitting Magazine.  You can download your copy here.
