Rudi was born from a friend asking if we minded her wearing an awful Christmas jumper to our Christmas dinner. Of course no one minded. Then it got competitive; who could come up with the most awesome Christmas jumper? So I decided that knitting one for my son would be an excellent challenge, and be rather quicker than knitting an adult sized one!
Knitted flat in aran weight yarn, this raglan sweater features an intarsia reindeer on the front. The instructions cover three sizes, 2–3 (22 inch chest), 4–5 (24 inch chest) and 6–7 (26 inch chest) years.
The yarns listed are not necessarily those used in the samples shown. If you change the contrast colour for the sleeves, you will also need to purchase some white yarn for the eyes. You will only require oddments of the colours needed for the intarsia.
I purchased Aran & DK wool which I used to create Christmas jumpers/sweaters for my grandnieces & grandnephew. They turned out really well & due to the excellent yardage I managed to create a bonus sweater..
