Im Elizabeth Smith and designing knitting patterns is my passion. I strive to create simple, modern designs and write patterns for them that are easy to follow and fun to knit. Most of my patterns are seamless and many are knit from the top-down. They are written with the beginner knitter in mind, providing lots of detailed instructions. I provide pattern support for all my designs so feel free to get in touch with me if you have any questions-I love to help and make sure my customers enjoy the knitting process (not to mention the finished piece!)View all patterns by designer (47) »
Arlo & Alice sweater vest is a unisex seamless top-down knit for babies and children and is the "mini" version of my adult pattern Abbi Shawl Collar Cardigan. It is sized from infant - 8 years and would make a perfect little layering piece for the fall & winter for both boys and girls.
Using aran/bulky-weight yarn, it's a fast knit and because instructions are given for two versions (stripes all over or stripes at the bottom), you can also have lots of fun with color.
Additionally, a photo tutorial is included in the pattern for how to create the optional patch-pocket, shown in the photographed "stripes-at-bottom" version.
Both of the samples photographed used Berroco Vintage Chunky. The "stripes-all-over" version was knit at the 0-6 month size and the "stripes-at-bottom" version was knit at the 2 yrs size.
