The technique used to create Pom Pom Jumper is more commonly known for making baby pom pom blankets. I’m now at an age in my life where lots of friends are having babies, have experienced loss or have been trying to conceive for a long time.

Whilst spending time with new mothers, I have been thinking about how much they can need as much care and attention as the new born baby does in the first few weeks and months of their life together. Instead of using the pom pom weave for the baby, it has been used to create this Pom Pom Jumper for mothers in hope of giving them some feeling of being looked after too.
