Little Sailor vest
Little sailor vest is a vintage-inspired piece, featuring a traditional sailing boat. The vest is the perfect traditional item for a baby or young child.
The vest is knitted from the bottom up in pieces. The boat is worked on a stocking stitch background using the intarsia technique. The hem, armholes and necklines are worked using 2 x 2 rib; the armholes and necklines are picked up and added after the garment has been seamed. The shoulders are fastened using buttons to allow for easy dressing.
The pattern is written for eight sizes, ranging from 3 months to 8 years [finished chest sizes 45.5 to 71 cm (18.25 to 28.5 in)], and is worked in a sport to DK weight yarn. The instructions for the intarsia section are given both in chart format and as written instructions.
