Jumper and Tank Top Unisex with Cable Diamonds
This snuggly little jumper, for boys or girls, can be made in a range of sizes from birth to 2 years.
Make it as a tank-top, without sleeves, and layer it over a t-shirt, shirt or blouse.
The textured panel on the front and sleeves is worked using a combination of front post trebles and is an ideal introduction to cables in crochet.
Worked from the neck down, the length is fully adjustable and could even be extended to make a pretty little jumper dress.
An optional neckline can be worked on the two larger sizes to provide a better finish for boys.
