New Pattern: Playbook Sweater Vest

I just released another new pattern – the Playbook Sweater Vest!  This is a pattern for a child’s v-neck vest.  I originally designed this as my Master Knitter Level 2 vest.

Playbook Sweater Vest

This is a vest knit in pieces from the bottom up – with cables on each side of front and back.  The neckline and armhole ribbing is knit afterwards, with the sides seamed last.

I designed it to fit my son, who loves to watch football, so the ‘playbook’ name seemed a better fit than the more traditional ‘hugs and kisses’ that the cable I used tends to evoke.

The yarn used was Knit Picks Merino Style, but any similar wool blend DK weight yarn can be used.  Between 650 and 800 yards will be needed depending on size selected.

Sizes: Child Small/6, Child Medium/10, Child Large/14.

Finished Measurements:
Chest: 12, (14, 15.5) inches.
Length: 15.5, (18, 20) inches.

Needles: US5 and US6.

It’s a sweet little vest, and I hope you enjoy it!

Happy Knitting!
