Monkey wanted a ‘Mummy made jumper’, as he is 3 and it will get worn while eating, playing and generally being a 3yo I decided to use an acrylic.
I chose Panda Magnum soft. I am pleasantly surprised, no crunch, no exfoliating effect on the fingers while knitting, the fabric is firm but not hard at all.
I’m using Style your own kids knits. The patterns in this are very wide, as I have thin kids I’m making the 2-3 width and adjusting the length to fit. I am knitting in the round to the armholes, as it is dropped shoulder the armholes are straight so it is just knit and back and forth from there until the neck shaping. This will be a crew neck, very simple with ribbing at the neck and cuffs.
