Pattern Description:

Poseidon is a vest designed to keep your little sea-monkey warm while frolicking around with the dolphins under the white caps.

It features a central 'fishtail' cable design flanked by alternating 'pillars' reminiscent of the underwater city of Atlantis, and 'rope' cabling. Also included are instructions for an alternative cable option for the 'seaweed' cable (as shown in the modelled photos) that can be found on the last page. Suitable for either boys or girls.

This design also works well for landlubbers!

I love knitting and am seriously addicted to it! When I buy new yarn I'm always looking for "the perfect pattern" to use it for but usually turn it into a new design instead! Most of my designs are for children and it's my girls (and baby boy!) that are the usual recipients and models of the final garments.
