The last few years I’ve seen lots of popcorn/pompom knits on Instagram and the blogs that I read. These have mainly been for babies, with a few exceptions. In fact, I have made my own share of popcorn items, including this kids popcorn cardigan, two popcorn jumpers for Mama and daughter (I have since made them two more as well) and a beautiful popcorn romper.
A good friend of mine in England saw the ‘Mama popcorn jumper’ and requested the same one in the same colour. Only she didn’t want it to be a cropped version. So in the midst of packing of our lives to move across the world from England to Australia in 2016 I knew that I absolutely HAD TO make this jumper for my friend.
And what’s so special about this jumper? It’s one of my own made up patterns. I have now knitted three versions of this exact jumper, the first one was a cropped version, this one and the third one were normal length. I love them and if I could carry them of I would totally knit myself one. What a happy recipient…need I say more?
