(6) Name: 'Knitting : Hotshot

Pattern Description:

An easy to knit, seamless & versatile pattern for a unisex vestee.

Great for wearing out and impressing people with your knitting whilst keeping kids warm, or for mucking around in the backyard.

Complete with a pick 'n' mix of options - hoods, collar, pockets!

The Hotshot vestee can be worn all year round and is good for kids that like to get dirty, no sleeves to roll up! It can be knitted in cotton for summer and is perfect for spring/autumn wear, or with a long sleeved thermal for winter.

This pattern is entirely seamless and is a fabulous pattern to learn to knit in the round with. The V-neck makes it perfect to fit over a baby's head and sits low enough to suit children who dislike wool sitting high around their neck.

Sizings for the patterns range from newborn up to 10 years (15-28 inch chest)

The patterns can be knit in either DK (8ply) or worsted weight (10ply) as long as a 20sts gauge is achieved. Information is also provided for substituting yarns of other weights.
