If it’s a tradition in your family or workplace to don a Christmas sweater come December, why not have a go at making your own? Whether you fancy wearing a tremendously tacky tree-inspired jumper or want to opt for something classy and cool, all these patterns are free to download. And with Save The Children’s annual Christmas Jumper Day taking place on Friday 18th December this year, you’ve still got enough time to whip up one of these beauties.
