Little boys often prefer simple shapes and muted colours. In this lovely design Katya Frankel has fulfilled those first two wishes, but also made the knitting interesting, thanks to seamless construction and charming cables. The yarn is Debbie Bliss Blue Faced Leicester Aran, a single-breed pure wool which comes in 16 colours and is machine washable. It’s soft, but will stand up to the wear and tear small people require!’
