Online Photo or Website
Name of website or photo Gianna's Jumper & Beret - Size 2-3
What materials did you use? #8 16 circular needle #5 double pointed needles OR a 16 circular needle (for the beret) #8 double pointed needles (for the beret) 2 skeins baby sportweight yarn (455 yards/skein) Bernats Softee Baby is perfect! Row marker Tapestry needle F/5 crochet hook Buttons, ribbon optional embellishments
What are you most proud of? I love the fact that this jumper slides easily over the child's head with no fussy buttons or anything that could become detached. The beret is adorable to complete the ensemble!
What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is a fairly easy (and fast) knit in the round project - top down on the jumper, from the bottom up on the beret. Love, love, love those seamless projects. when you're done, you're done!!! Simply weave in the loose ends. I'm not much of a blocker either. The first time, I simply machine washed the clothing and laid the jumper flat to dry (same for the hat). You can also machine wash and simply hang the jumper on a little plastic hanger. It will dry fast!
