My design ideas and advice: This design has a few siblings! I designed this hoodie because knitters asked me to! It is the hoodie version of the Kyle Jumper, the Kyle Jumper was designed because of the Gamsber Jumper, a jumper for children with sizes up to 10 years old and I had lots of people, ladies and gentlemen pop into the studio and say that wish that jumper was in adult sizes. I love being able to say – It is! And now there is a hoodie version too!
