Are not quicker to knit that big people clothes. Fact.

I thought they would be.  They are not.  In fact, I cast on 87 stitches for my adult sized Fairy Dust Jumper, and for the jumper I’m making a friends 6 month old son (see!!!! proper small person size!) I have cast on 62, the adult jumper on 4.5mm needles and the baby jumper on 4mm.  I’m incredibly confused by this!!!


I am making this Design D – Sweater & Hat from Sirdar Spinning Ltd for little Freddy.  The pattern is a free download available from Ravelery.

Rico Design Baby Classic DK in Grass Green and Blue Twist and Jarol Heritage DK in Navy Blue with 3.25mm and 4mm needles.

Happy knitting Sunday!
