What you need to know

Sachiyo Ishii’s oh-so-stylish critter

Aardvarks are native to Africa so it’s no surprise Perry needs a sweater for the British summertime. The self-patterning yarn makes it a super snazzy garment for this suave mammal. He is pretty straightforward to knit with basic decreases used to shape the body. The jumper is worked in a 4ply yarn and has a back opening that is fastened with a popper – this means you could make a whole wardrobe of stylish sweaters for Perry!
