Christmas Comes Early

Every December I think how lovely it would be to have a hand knitted Christmas jumper, by which time it is or course far too late to do anything about it. I set some knitting-related New Year resolutions back in January and making a Christmas jumper was one of them. I cast the Frosty’s Christmas jumper on early on in the lockdown and wrote a blog post about it at the time.

Since then I’ve fallen in and out of love with knitting a few times, so progress has been sporadic, but I finally finished it tonight! I love it!

It’s knitted in a gorgeous light fluffy alpaca/silk mix, which has been lovely to work with and as well as the cute snowman design it features this moss stitch rib on lower edge, cuffs and neck.

I decided that it needed something more to add a bit of Christmas sparkle (because a Christmas jumper needs bling). I found these iridescent white sequins and sewed them on to add a snowstorm, which took a while! I’ve had clothes with sequins on before and they always seem to come off so I made sure these were sewn extra securely……all 300 of them!

I love that the back view of the snowman is on the back of the jumper

Snowman’s face includes a knitted carrot nose and black sequin eyes and mouth. he also has a cosy scarf.

I’m rather looking forward to wearing him this December!

Have you started making anything for Christmas yet?

  1. I love that the Barack of the snowman is on the back of the jumper, too!

    I don’t think I am making anything for Christmas this year. I have no idea what’s in store, so it’s hard to envisage what to do.
