I was delighted to get this pattern in on request of my auntie Barbara! She wanted a cricket jumper she could knit for her grandsons and I was so delighted to find this gem from King Cole. (If you have any ideas for your next project, let me know at help@yoursyarnfully.com and I'll see what I can do!) I absolutely love the cricket jumper style and think it looks absolutely adorable!


3 variants are included in this pattern - a traditional V-neck jumper in either one or two colours, and a vest.


For this project, you can use any DK yarn though King Cole brand is recommended. We have some perfect colours in the Comfort Baby DK range including soft blues and greens. You'll need up to 5 balls depending on the size you are knitting - check the third picture for exact requirements.


Straight needles in sizes 3.25mm and 4mm are required, along with a cable needle and stitch holders.
