Ava Jumper Pattern

On Sale
Added to cart

A new great grand baby to the family and an invite to the baby shower meant the knitting needles needed to come out. I’ve been wanting to design some small person garments for a while so this was the perfect opportunity. This top down jumper with a side button to the neckline means it’s easy to pop on from newborn to 8 years old.  


Knitted initially straight before moving to in the round on circular needles and double pointed needles (optional) for the sleeve. You will need to knit, purl, decrease and increase stitches. The loop for the button is a crochet chain.
