The Lazy Days Jumper by Hannah Cross

Every little one needs a jumper that goes with everything and that you can just pull on to head out to play in. The Lazy Days Jumper is a beautifully textured garment with a simple raglan construction that is just the thing for those lazy days.

The Designer: Hannah Cross

Designer, writer, maker, photographer and chief tea maker is how Hannah Cross describes her role as HanJan Crochet. With a daytime (and night time) job as a midwife and a new mum herself, Hannah squeezes crochet into every last moment she can. It all started with a desire to make for friends and their new babies but a complete inability to follow instructions from other people (ask her husband..) led to Hannah designing and creating her own crochet patterns and has now forged a fun and fresh online presence in the form of HanJan Crochet.

Hannah now works as a regular designer for Simply Crochet magazine and has featured in Mollie Makes, The Pattern Pack, Happily Hooked Magazine, Crochet Now and more. Her favourite designs are still baby blankets and thankfully her friends and family keep producing little ones to keep her busy!
