What you need to know

The ideal Christmas gift? Matt Baker all wrapped up in this Father Christmas jumper! The former Blue Peter presenter and co-host of Countryfile and The One Show grew up on a sheep farm on the Dales, making him a natural fit for woolly knits. The sight of him in the Santa Claus sweater designed by Sarah Kim fills us with festive cheer!

The pattern is taken from Novelty Knits by Gyles and Saethryd Brandreth (Kyle Books), which features cheerful jumpers modeled by a host of famous faces! The book has an RRP of £15.99 and is available to purchase here.

Why not wear the Santa Claus sweater on Save the Children's Christmas Jumper Day?
