My Little Bumble Bee

This Saturday, our little Coco will turn three, so I decided to knit him a jumper for his birthday. I sorted through my wool box and found three lovely Autumn colours, then went searching the internet for a pattern that would fit his size. Well after much browsing, I found one I thought would be suitable, but it was hard to tell from the photo shown, even so, I decided to give it a go and downloaded the PDF pattern.

 
It was simple enough to knit, and was all completed in a couple of days. However, even following the pattern to the letter, the jumper turned out slightly larger than expected. The length was perfect, but the underside a little too wide at the front which in turn made the polo neck loose, so it slipped down his shoulders.
 
He looks really cute in it just the same, just like a chubby bumble bee, but next time I will try making one using a different pattern.

    1. Thanks JS, though I'm not too sure he would agree with you, he's not overly fond of it. :)

  4. He's adorable. I just find it amazing that not only will he wear a sweater (my dogs always hated them) but he'll sit still long enough for you to snap a photo.

    1. He thinks so, but he's really not fond of wearing at all. The photo was pure luck I'm afraid, it really is a case of the quick and the dead around here with Coco. :)

    1. Hi Lily!
      Oh he's a handsome little devil alright, a real big poser!! I have since found a great pattern book with 12 different designs, so I maybe knitting for quite some time to come, but at least my wool stash will take a hit. :)
