Charlie Oversized Baby Jumper
This oversized jumper is ideal for keeping your small person warm this winter: the Half-Fisherman’s Rib creates a thick squishy and stretchy fabric, and the oversized style is right on trend. Knit bottom up in individual pieces, Charlie has subtle short-row shaping and a 3-needle cast off at the shoulder to create a straightforward sewing up experience, and the opening on the left shoulder makes getting it on and off bubs so much simpler. Charlie has an older sibling pattern, Dell, who is available in sizes 2y-12y.
