The Tiddler - Jane's Scuba Merino Baby & Toddler Jumper Knit Kit
Our Tiddler Jumper (sweater) knit kit for babies and toddlers is just the cutest little top to make for your favourite small people! Available to mix and match in any of our lovely merino wool colours.
This kit is a step on from our other kits and is designed to be suitable for people with some knitting experience already and wider knowledge of some knitting techniques. For example in this kit you need to 'pick up stitches', do colour-work from a chart and assemble the item at the end.
It would be ideal for someone with knitting experience or a confident early stage knitter who is looking for a greater challenge. Some of the skills are not specifically covered in the learn to knit booklet (picking up stitches and colour-work for example) and the kit requires a basic level of understanding of these techniques.
Every baby and toddler deserves some handmade baby clothes, and this jumper (or sweater to our American friends) is perfect for you to make for your own baby (or someone else’s). You just need to choose your favourite colour combo!
In your knitting kit: clear The Tiddler - Jane's Scuba Merino Baby & Toddler Jumper knitting pattern, premium merino wool knitting yarn, knitting needles, tapestry needle, 20 page learn-to-knit help booklet and Knit Kit Company cotton project storage bag
Three sizes: best for up to 6 months old, 6 -12 months and 12 months to 24 months
Easy-ish level: perfect for an accomplished knitter or someone who is looking to grow their skills as a knitter - this project includes a few skills not found in any of our other kits yet including following a chart and picking up stitches.
Our Tiddler Scuba Merino Jumper is knitted using the finest and softest merino wool, which is renowned for its breathability and warmth. Babies and toddlers always need really cute clothes to keep them warm and cosy, but this lightweight merino is also perfect for helping prevent them overheat. Your little one will always be just the right level of cosiness!
If your baby is in extra need of cosiness or you're looking for an easier knit, why not get our best-selling India Blanket in matching colours too?
*Please note, actual yarn colours may vary slightly according to dyelot and your screen!
About our Tiddler - Jane's Scuba Merino Jumper Knit Kit
WHAT WILL YOU LOVE ABOUT THIS KNIT KIT?
The Tiddler - Jane's Scuba Jumper knitting pattern uses the knit and purl stitches to create basic techniques called stocking stitch but you also use a chart to teach you how to make the coloured fish in the body of the jumper. You'll learn how to make a button-hole and to shape the shoulders of the jumper! Lots of new skills. Don't worry, we've kept it as simple as possible but this kit would suit someone with a little bit of knitting experience best.
This kit makes a lovely gift for a friend or family member who is going to have/has had a baby, and lets them enjoy improving their knitting skills whilst making something super special!
The jumper is designed to be a timeless classic that you can pass on from one baby to another. Knitted using lovely smooth knitting needles and your two colour choices of sport/DK premium merino wool knitting yarn.
We've chosen a few of our favourite colour combinations for you to choose from. So pick your favourite and get knitting!
