Crochet Action Man Jumper
Kameron really wanted some clothes for his Action Man but the only pattern I had at the time was a knitting pattern that came with the Action Man tent pattern. I didn’t know how to knit then and I couldn’t find any crochet patterns so (AGAIN!) I made it up myself. I made it in the typical Action Man Black and Orange colours and it fit his 12″ figures very well. Kameron was very pleased to finally start building a new collection of clothes for his Action Man.
We love Action Man that much that Kameron and Korey have a blog about the History of Action Man - http://actionmanonline.blogspot.co.uk/
Rather than working in the round, I worked the front and back separately, in rows, in UK Double Crochet/dc [US Single Crochet/sc]. Then I sewed the sides and shoulders together. I attached the yarn to the arm opening and worked in rounds, also in UK dc [US sc]. Then I worked the neck, sleeve cuffs and bottom in orange after.

James C. Brett Top Value DK (shade - Black 8430, Orange 8443).
1 x 100g (3.5oz/317yds/290m) ball.
Weight category: UK DK [US 3/Light Worsted/DK].
Tension/gauge: 22 stitches x 30 rows = 4″ (10cm) on size 4mm/UK 8 [US G/6] hook.
The crochet hook I used was a 4mm/UK 8 [US G/6].
I would give the James C. Brett Top Value DK yarn a 4 out of 5 for the following reasons:-
- It was extremely easy to work.
- There is a large choice of colours available;
- The feel of it is very soft once washed. Although, for large projects is does get very heavy.
- I think if you are looking for a quality budget yarn this is one of the best yarns on the market for price, colour choice, quality, multiple uses and quantity on a ball.
- The cost of yarn is very cost effective - I paid about £1.65 per 100g ball.
- Would I use this yarn again? YES, DEFINITELY.
I hope this brings you creative joy and inspires you to start your own yarn-tastic journey.
