My design ideas and advice: The Shelby Baby Jumper is very much inspired by vintage knitting patterns. I love vintage knitting patterns, mostly just to read! They are very ambiguous and I romanticise that is because they were a starting point and the knitter had experience or help from family or friends as they spent evenings and weekends together knitting sharing techniques over the different generations. Most of the vintage garment patterns I have read are knitted in flat pieces and sewn together.

This design is knitted from the bottom up in the round until the armholes and then it is divided. It is a great starting pattern for a knitter wanting to knit in the round. A simple pattern for the new baby that is easy to knit! It goes up to 2 years old and the first size needs just one hank of my Purl &Jane Cuckoo Cashmere 4 Ply, 80% merino and 20% cashmere perfect gift for baby’s soft skin.

This cardigan is knitted in one piece until the armholes.
