Hi,

This year i would like to knit a female and a male jumper or vest with a christmassy feel.

I'm not too fussed, either a snowman,reindeer, christmas tree or any other christmas pattern. A couple of these would be good as i would like the jumpers/vests to be different.

I can't find any patterns online or in my local knitting shops. Any idea where i can find some patterns?

Thanks

Sounds like a good idea and you're making me feel guilty about starting Christmas knitting. Are you thinking of an adult or a children's pattern?
There are pages on Ravelry (free to join) and it's not a bad place to start.

Some nice looking pullovers out there. I don't know if this is the kind of thing you were thinking of:

Thanks for those but i am looking more for a pattern with just one big rudolf or anyother christmas character rather than those that are heavily printed?
