Pattern Description:

A chevron patterned jacket to fit newborns to 4 year olds. The pattern is easy to learn, but the sizes are written separately, and in full, to make it more user-friendly for "not-so-experienced" knitters. A colour chart is also given which can be used as a short cut pattern for experts!

Written for rainbow colours as in the modeled pics (age 4 size), but easily adaptable for other colour combinations, by using the accompanying chart.


27 sts, 34 rows to 10 cm in stocking stitch on 3.5 mm (US 4) needles (this should result in 29 sts, 29 rows in established chevron pattern on the same needles)

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • To fit chest size 40 cms, 45 cms, 50 cms, 55 cms, 60 cms


  • 4 ply/ fingering weight yarn: 75 gms for 40 cms size, up to 210 gms for 60 cm size.

You Will Also Need:

  • 1 pair 3.5 mm (US 4) needles
