Joyful and Jubilant Jumper

By Christine Mershon for redheart.com | June 10, 2016

This comfortable crochet jumper has bright colored stripes and is easy to accessorize according to the season. This crochet toddler dress is written for sizes two through size years, so it’s perfect for any little toddler. Be sure to check out the project chart for additional guidance.

  1. Jumper is made in 3 pieces: Front collar, back collar, and skirt.
  2. The front collar is worked back and forth in rows. Increases are worked in two locations to form corners. Stitches before the first corner and following the 2nd corner form the straps. Stitches between the corners form the upper front of the Jumper. The back collar is worked the same as the front collar, except with longer straps.
  3. The skirt is worked in joined rounds, beginning by working across the lower edges (between corners) of the front and back collar.
