This downloadable pattern is for a child's hooded body warmer/waistcoat, explained in sizes 24", 26" and 28" (61cm, 66cm and 71cm) around the chest. This cosy waistcoat is knitted with double knitting weight yarn, using 3.75mm (No. 9) and 4.5mm (No. 7) knitting needles.
Beginner to intermediate level of knitting skills are required, e.g. cast on, knit, purl, decreasing, picking up stitches and casting/binding off. I am always happy to help if you have any queries.
The photographs illustrate the waistcoat made with James C. Brett Marble double knitting weight yarn, which is a beautifully soft yarn, but can be made with any double knitting weight yarn.
