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.
