Pattern Description:

I designed this vintage-style vest for my great-nephew Max.

Knit in an acrylic cotton blend, this ribbed vest with mosaic band is a hip knit for your favorite toddler.

There are three sizes for toddlers (1, 2 and 3years). The length can be adjusted between cast on edge and armpit for longer torso's.

I used Knit Picks Comfy Sport yarn, but any cotton sportweight yarn would work.

You'll need three colors of yarn (three strings). The vest is shown in orange, brown and yellow, but any three complimentary colors would work beautifully.

  • Toddler size 1, 2, 3
