Child’s Gartan Jumper Pattern


This single pattern is available as a download.

My design ideas and advice: This jumper is the child’s version of the adults Gartan Jumper. Knitted in chunky it’s a super quick knit for an experienced knitter to get a garment ready for a child’s first winter or to keep them cosy with a cuddle in those chilly spring evenings. For a beginner it is one of those perfect my first garments.
And for the Child it is a great jumper to pull on and play in because it is oversized and there for gives freedom to run, play and enjoy being a child!
I’ve included two button on the collar to make it super easy to pull on over the head, another small detail that helps keep life simple and fun.
