FO - Celebrations Jumper

This jumper began last month as a way of using up a number of yarn ends and playing around with the barber pole striping technique. Throughout the project I always had 3 balls of yarn on the go and would replace each one when they ran out or if I just fancied a change


I used the Little Hoodlum pattern which is for DK weight yarn but used aran/worsted scraps. I could probably have got away with a smaller size but my son loves his big snuggly jumper and with the ribbing on the cuffs I can fold up the sleeves until he's bigger

I'm not sure why my children have a problem with posing for photos lol

Funny boy!




The bright happy colours really suit his personality. He's such a happy little chappy. Apart from last week when he had an ear infection but they're never fun :( He's almost completely better now.


Clearly he's been watching his big brother's posing techniques!. All I asked was for him to show me the back :-)


I'm linking this post in with FO Friday, Fiber Arts Friday and Creative Friday. Have a good weekend everyone :-) I'm hoping for a lazy weekend as we've not had much sleep lately with my little boy waking up because his ear was hurting. Probably asking too much to hope for a lie in!


  1. It looks great. I think your son will live in that for the next couple of years.

  2. That's a very interesting technique and the result is stunning. Great model btw!

  3. What a fun sweater! Nice job.

  4. Another reason I am glad I had girls. LOL! Darling sweater on a darling little guy!

  5. The last pic is hilarious. What a fun character this son is. Great gansey. I really admire how you knit so much for your babes.

  6. I love this sweater. It came out wonderfully. What a great way to use up bits and pieces of yarn.

  7. LOVE IT!!! So bright and cheery, full of colour just like it's wearer I imagine. Don't worry it isn't your kids, it is a boys everywhere thing, lol

  8. Awesome sweater! And his poses - just as awesome!

  9. What a happy little boy! Glad he is better. Ear infections are so painful, my kids suffered from them for a couple of years when they were very young. The jumper turned out terrific!

  10. Fab and happy looking sweater! Your son is a great model, I can see he loves his new outfit :) Thankfully he feels fine again.
