Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit, purl, inc, dec,, 3 needle bo, changing colors

Pattern Description:

We just can't make too many vests. These are practical, versatile, fun and very easy knitting.

Using the chunky yarn and the strips of color makes this another fun pattern to work. Because there's no difficult neck shaping or collar attachments, this vest works up fast.

I call it the Adjustable Vest because of it's shape and closing allows a whole new range of sizing simply by moving the buttons. Cross fronts, right over left for girls and left over right for boys. Choose your favorite bright colors and have fun.

They work up so quickly, you'll want to make several in various colors. Designed for ages 5-12 years old. Lots of wear possibilities.


Gauge based on Garter Stitch:

I have been knitting and crocheting for over 55 years, having learned at the age of 5. After retiring in 2011, I am able to pursue my dream of designing my own patterns and sharing them. Thank you for looking and join us at Knitting Paradise for lots of fun and information.
