Little Reindeer Jumper
This fun and cosy jumper will be an instant Christmas classic for boys and girls. This jumper is worked flat in pieces from the top down. Wind off smaller balls of yarn before you begin and work the chart using the intarsia technique, crossing the yarns when changing colour to avoid holes. You can work the Back of the jumper without the reindeer if preferred, but this will require one extra ball of red yarn.
Yarn: DROPS Nepal
Sizing: 2 - 12 years
