Knit a Christmas Jumper / Sweater Campervan / Kombi Style!

I finally managed to finish knitting my "kids camper van jumper" (though for people rather smaller than my own kids!).  This jumper is designed to fit kids from 0-6 months up to 7 years. (I might have a go at an adult sized one later next year).
This is based on the VW Splitscreen but I'm hoping to do a Bay too (If you want a Bay one, let me know by email and I'll let you know when the pattern is available).
As it's Christmas time I figured I'd go a bit festive with the colours, hence the red, green and white and a candy cane hood!  You can of course customise your colours :)
If you fancy having a go at knitting one, the pattern is available in my Etsy shop.
Merry Christmas and Happy knitting everyone!

Campervan Egg Cosy or Christmas Tree Decoration ???

I was thinking (I know, steady on!), there is no reason you couldn't use the Campervan Egg Cosy Pattern to make some Festive Dub Decorations for your Christmas tree.
Why not sew a bell inside to add a festive touch ;)
Maybe you could fill them with some kind of Christmas scented pot pourri and stitch a felt base on them, or even better, fill them with small sweets and sew in a paper base as a treat for the kids (unless they are liquor chocolates in which case back off kids, they're mine!).
If you decide to give it a go I'd love to see some photos - just send me an email -
