YARN The After Party 112 - Billy Bear Jacket

By Jane Burns

To expand our collection of adorable baby clothing, Jane Burns has designed a playful knitted jacket for the sweetest and smallest of people in our lives. Completed with brightly-coloured buttons and soft bear ears on the hood, the Billy Bear Jacket makes every child look unbearably cute. Featured in issue 112, the Billy Bear Jacket coordinates beautifully with the Bibbed Sweater featured in YARN The After Party 83.

The Billy Bear Jacket is knitted in garter stitch using one of our seven shades of Scheepjes Merino Soft Brush. For crafty hands looking to create their own unique make, this garment would look just as beautiful in one of our 56 colours of Scheepjes Merino Soft! Merino Soft Brush and Merino Soft are interchangeable yarns, made from a silky soft Merino Wool blend with a luxurious look and feel, perfect for creating comfortable garments that will last for years to come. The pattern includes 5 sizes for babies and toddlers from 0-24 months old.
