Back in July, I finished this jumper for my Niece’s first Christmas – now that Christmas has been and gone I can actually share about it. For years I’ve had this pattern – French Macaroon Jumper on my “to knit at some point” list. When I decided that I’d make some of my Christmas presents, it was a perfect one for my niece.
French Macaroon Jumper
Pattern: French Macaroon Jumper by The Noble Thread (The Pattern is on Ravelry)
Yarn: Stylecraft Special DK in Cream and Himalaya Everyday Bebe Rengarenk (This was a random score from the Genbrug/Charity Shop)
I’ve had this pattern saved in my Ravelry Library for years with the idea that one day I’d make it but I’d always put it off. I decided that I’d try and make some of my Christmas presents as they should travel back to the UK a bit easier.
First on the list was a jumper for B as it’s her first Christmas. Baby jumpers are easy to knit and quick – so this one has taken me about 2 weeks ish. I spent a lot of time knitting while at Summer Camp so that helped to get it done quicker.
Apart from the 3 needle bind off it’s a really simple pattern, especially for beginners. When it comes to the cast off – I love this video from VeryPink Knits as it’s so simple to follow (And she has a slower version too if needed).
