*** This deliciously preppy, unisex vest will dress up any outfit while keeping little tummies toasty. The cable texture is very stretchy, which makes for a comfortable and durable garment. The cable pattern itself is intuitive and easy to memorize, and it’s much easier than it looks!
Note: For an optimal fit, be sure to select a size according to the child’s actual chest size. The age labels are for reference only. ***
SKILLS REQUIRED: casting on, knitting, purling, knitting and purling through the back loop, increasing, decreasing, knitting in the round, working a cable pattern from charts, picking up stitches, three-needle bind off. Note: the cable pattern is charted only.
