November 2014

I absolutely love this pattern. It's cute, quick and easy enough that I did most of the colour work part on a long car journey.

My only reservation is that I think the sizing is a little on the large side, and so I made a 9 - 12 month old size to fit a little boy who is about to turn 1.

It makes a lovely christmas jumper, but not being christmas-specific it would be wearable all winter.

The buttons came from Hobbycraft. As far as I can tell, they're intended to be worn at front or back, depending on what you prefer. I think I liked them better at the front.

The John Lewis Heritage Merino dk is a merino/acrylic blend, and lovely and soft. I needed something washable, as this is for a baby, but it wasn't at all squeaky like some acrylic can be. And it took colour work beautifully, without any crinkling.
