I wanted to make a hooded jumper for my son, and had some leftover Bella yarn which has now been discontinued (annoyingly, as I think it’s LOVELY!). Anyway, I didn’t have enough of one colour to make the whole jumper and the only 2 colours I did have enough of were very similar – however I think they work really well together as subtle stripes – so after a very quick test, I was off.

I didn’t follow a pattern, but know that I knit very close to gauge so made it up as I went along, having measured my son as best I could a wriggling toddler who wont sit still for more than 10 seconds!

This is the finished item. I LOVE it. The hood is oversized which wasn’t intentional, but actually sits really well on him. I had hoped it would be slightly larger and fit him for longer, but as he is still wearing clothes bought more than a year ago, and he’s pretty skinny, I should get at least a year or so out of it…

I am also blessed to have such a fantastic model to knit for 😉
