gingersnap, free pattern

January 28, 2019










With all the Gingersnap jackets I've made over the years, my own grandson didn't have one until now! We took him around town today in his new sweater and he got so many compliments! Well, I must say he did look absolutely darling in it. 

This is the two year size. I know I've promised to revise the pattern to include the larger sizes, but I have to apologize as it has not happened. I could give you a million excuses why, but the bottom line is, I just have not. Maybe one day I will, I'm sure hoping I will, and if I do, I will shout it out loud and clear! In the meantime, the Gingersnap pattern for the one year size is always available for free on Ravelry. There have been over 450 made and they are all so cute! There is also a little matching sweater for your child's teddy or doll. Links below.


My little model will stand still(ish) for only seconds. Literally seconds. As soon as he felt he had stood still enough he turned right around and walked into the laundry room which gave me a good photo of the back! He loves the laundry room with its bouquet of brooms and mops in the corner.  He loves to clean the floor, dust the furniture, and fold laundry, but believe me, when he is done "helping", the house looks like a disaster! The purple spider broom is a particular favorite of his. We walk around the house looking high and low for spider webs to vanquish! Such fun!

Had enough!

What luck! The laundry room door is open!

Score!  We have the purple spider broom!

    1. We almost got him one of those for Christmas! I hear they love it! We have a mini vacuum that I keep in my sewing room and he gets that out every single time he comes. He really can be useful with it!

    1. This is a size two. I had been experimenting with sizes and think I've got it up to a size 4, but have not written out the pattern. Hoping that one day I will get my mojo and do it. When I do, I'll make sure I blast it loud and clear here on my blog!
