Urban Pirates

I'm so excited to be finally posting about this FO. I finished it last month, but I had to wait for the arrival of the recipient's new little sister, who was rather bashful about putting in an appearance. But she is here at last, and the jumper has been sent from one urban jungle to another.

I've wanted to knit this pattern - Pirate Sweater from Zoe Mellor's Adorable Knits for Tots - ever since I was given the book a few years ago. I think the pattern is just so much fun and very cute. So I made this for young Nye, to celebrate the arrival of his new little sister. She received this jumper which has been in the FO project bag for a little while.

I knitted this in a machine washable acrylic, to preserve the sanity of the busy parents, and the yarn is nice and soft and not plasticie at all. The pattern was easy to follow, and pretty quick to knit, except for the skull and cross bones. Given the series of knitting disaster I've been having recently, it was good to have a quick and very satisfying project.


  1. I can think of other younger siblings who might have been willing to model a larger version.

  2. That jumper is very cool. I have a son {2 y.o} and I would so dress him in it.
