It’s Christmas in July, based on the appearance of this toddler jacket. Because there were only two skeins of green yarn, I was forced to make contrasting cuffs and collar using cream colored yarn. The result is a garment that might be found on one of Santa’s elves.
Thankfully, toddlers are rarely fussy about clothing. I feel confident the jacket will be deemed acceptable by my two-year-old granddaughter.
It was a fun and a quick knit. Here is a link to the pattern:
Now I can turn my attention to socks. I have these yummy yarns from Knit pick
The Capretta is a cashmere blend that is incredibly soft. This will be made into socks for hubby. I haven’t yet decided who will get the socks made from the Felici self-striping yarn. Perhaps someone in my daughter’s family.
Everyone deserves to have a least one pair of custom-knitted wool socks. It is one of the secret luxuries of life not easily available to most people, and totally appreciated by those fortunate enough to be loved by a knitter.
A jacket in the style of Santa’s elves? Well, you must have a strong fashion sense to pull off that look.
