My design ideas and advice: Children will love the Christmassy feeling that comes with wearing a snuggly jumper complete with Rudolph the red nose reindeer!

This is a simple pattern that uses the intarsia technique. For anyone who hasn’t tried intarsia before this is the best way to start or, for those that have, it’s so simple it can be knitted up ready in time for Christmas!
