This cotton cable jumper is great for any younger child. Our free Rowan knitting pattern uses a traditional XOXO cable pattern on the body and sleeves which gives the jumper extra bulk and warmth.
We’ve knitted our design in Rowan Handknit Cotton - a double knitting weight yarn which is perfect for children who can’t wear (or don’t like to) wear wool next to their skin. Rowan Handknit Cotton comes in so many gorgeous colours, you’ll find plenty to choose from - for girls or boys.
If you want other options, take a look at some of the other double knitting yarns from Rowan such as Cashsoft Baby DK, which is wonderfully soft. Rowan Cashsoft Baby DK is machine washable too, which is ideal for kids’ clothes.
If you’re on a tight budget and are looking for a cheaper option in cotton, you could try Patons 100% Cotton DK which is excellent value for money. Or for a warmer jumper... knit our free knitting pattern in Patons Merino Wool DK.
