Rudolf would have loved this cosy Reindeer Romper Set for dashing through the snow, and it’s so much fun to knit! Worked in pieces and joined, this is an heirloom pattern to love and pass on to family babies for years to come. It’s knitted in Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino, super soft and hard wearing (and machine washable!) and we just love the intarsia tummy and added antlers, with a zip that you can hand sew in place when you’re making up. The little bootees are knitted flat and seamed, with matching antlers and noses attached!
