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. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Knit, purl, slip stitch GAUGE 8 stitches, 8 rows to 1 inch SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Toddler size 1, 2, 3 PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Knit Picks Comfy Sport COLORWAY Orange, Brown, Yellow

Wool Free and Lovin' Knit
Born and raised in Toronto, Ontario, Joan has been living with her husband and their papillon in Boston, MA for the past 7 years and they have just moved to the West Coast. An allergy to wool caused her to give up knitting for more than a decade. In 2008, through the encouragement of her best knitting friend, she discovered the many wonderful new wool-free yarns that are being produced. She is knitting again and now designing for others, like herself, who are allergic to wool. Her blog, Wool Free and Lovin' Knit , inspires other knitters with allergies to find their own wool-free way in the sheep-centric world of fiber arts.
