I have hand knitted this beautiful jumpsuit in a combination of black yarn with bright contrasting stripes to make a fun and jolly outfit for the fall/winter. It is made from a warm wool mix yarn which can be machine washed very important for the busy Mum! The texture is a thick springy rib which is soft and stretchy so the suit will fit a 12 year old easily. It measures approx 22 ins around the chest and is 28 ins from shoulder to ankle cuff. It has a back zipper and I have knitted some fine elastic thread into the waistband to keep its shape. The pattern is a French one and is stylish as well as practical. No fiddly button fastenings and no falling down pants! The ideal outfit for an active toddler. It will suit a boy or a girl and can be worn with a variety of coloured tops underneath. I have shown it with a white one for demonstration purposes. Lightweight, warm and comfortable, it certainly is a must for the cold months ahead!
