Fish and Chip Baby Jumper
I've nearly finished knitting a fish and chip baby jumper. I'm just using navy worsted and the pattern is done in one piece, then folded over and stitched, so it's easy.

The only difference between an experienced knitter and new knitter is that the experienced knitter makes bigger mistakes faster. Be bold; there are no terrible consequences in knitting.

First of all, welcome to the world of knitting and this forum, Janis!

The jumper is designed for fish and chip babies, a name given to babies in Africa, many of them suffering from Aids who leave hospital wrapped only in newspaper as if they were just fish and chips.

I'll post photos as soon as I can, but here is a link to some pictures of completed jumpers and a couple before being sewn up:

Well done.

I had never heard of it, but I have to say - nothing like I imagined. I thought it would be some kind of Halloweencostume... Any idea why this jumper is called after such a famous English food combination?
