My design idea and advice: This pattern came to being because knitters were asking me to make the Danny Brow child’s jumper into an adult garment. So ask and ye shall receive! It’s a great one to play around with when choosing the shades and I’ve loved helping those knitters pick colours. We start off with their favourite colour and then add shades to compliment it.
