Christmas Jumper Designs

You can knit a more subtle one with, for example, a snowflake design, or a more Christmassy design like snowmen, Christmas trees, wrapped gift boxes, or ornaments.

And The Perfect Yarn

When knitting a sweater is better to choose animal fibers like wool and cashmere. 

For a quick knit, the chunky/bulky/12 ply yarn or super bulky/super chunky/14 ply yarn is the best choice.

Using this weight of yarn will allow you to knit up a sweater quickly.
