Making things for little people is always a nice job. We welcomed our niece Pip into the world back in June and with Autumn coming, I thought a jumper would be the perfect gift.
Months have passed since I cast on. Ironically this is one of my smallest knitting projects, yet its taken me the longest to finish. After injuring my arm I wasn’t able to knit for several weeks but this month I was able to get some serious knitting done and I’ve finally cast off! Happy happy joy joy!
My Flax Pullover has been a faithful companion. I normally wear it for outdoor activities so it should be comfy enough for a wriggly baby. This time I used the Flax Light pattern by Tin Can Knits; a lightweight version of the Flax Pullover.
Pip has a few clothes with rainbows on so I made one for the front of her jumper; several rows of chain stitch on felt backing. In retrospect I wish I’d lined each colour up with the bottom of the purple stripe. It bugs me every time I look at the photo but she probably won’t mind.

You clever girl I am sure Juniper will love her jumper from her Auntie Gemma ? Xx
I hope so 🙂
She loves it ? X
I’m pleased 🙂 I’m hoping Pip won’t gasp with horror she grows up and submits it to some kind of knitwear horror gallery!
Awwww it is so sweet!
Do you do them in big sizes? 😉
Hehe. I can teach you how to knit one!
What a lovely little sweater – I love the detail on the sleeves! 🙂
Thanks Hannah 🙂 I like the sleeve detail too!
