Make something just a bit different, but that is still simple.......I knit mostly for charity now that I am retired, and I often find that I end up making the same pattern over and over. I felt that it would be nice to design a simple pattern, which could be completed in not too long a time, that was ideal for a young girl or boy, just by choosing the correct color. I decided upon a vest type sweater, as it can be useful on its own, or as an extra layer. It is attractive to look at too, which is an added bonus. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit purl increase decrease cast on and off sew up GAUGE As a charity garment, the gauge isn't as important as if the garment were to be made for a family member. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 28" finished chest measurement PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Any double knitting yarn is ideal COLORWAY Personal choice

When I retired, I felt like it was time to do a bit of 'give back' to the community, so I involve myself in a little voluntary work, and take great pleasure from knitting for charity......when I designed this pattern (which has been tested for accuracy), I thought that publishing it would perhaps help me to raise a little extra cash to donate to the local charity Caritas. I sell any toys I make if I can, and all the monies, apart from the cost of materials is given to this very worthwhile charity. I would be so delighted if you buy and enjoy this pattern as much as I have designing it and making it. Hopefully over time I will be able to add more patterns to my portfolio xx
