Hotshot is a v-necked vestee and and is just one in a series of 3 unisex, easy to knit, seamless (topdown) and versatile patterns called ‘The Little Rascals’ which are sold together as an e-book. They’re great for wearing out or for mucking around in the backyard.

The Hotshot can be worn all year round and is good for kids that like to get mucky, no sleeves to roll up! It can be knitted in cotton for summer and is perfect for spring/autumn wear, or with a long sleeved thermal for winter.

Now available to be bought and downloaded as an individual pattern as well as part of the e-book. If bought as an individual pattern please note it only contains the full and comprehensive Hotshot pattern

The e-book is a comprehensive, detailed pattern with almost every imaginable extra possible! The new improved pick-a-path style pattern has so many options to allow you to choose your own way through the pattern, creating your own unique garment for a loved one.

The updated e-book now contains instructions for:

  • Contrast colour edge (designed for those that dislike picking up stitches this is done as the garment is being knitted but is a skill for an intermediate level knitter)
  • Moss or garter stitch edge
  • Hood
  • Collars in either rib, moss or garter stitch
  • Wide or tapered sleeves
  • Cables in the raglan, kangaroo pocket or hood
  • Kangaroo or patch pockets

As well as exclusive Watermellish embellishment charts

  • Bulldozers
  • Daisies
  • Ladybugs
  • Caterpillars

But wait! There’s more!

Also included is PupPup’s Mini Hotshot pattern (for teddies), so you can knit matching sets for beloved teds.

Sizings for the patterns range from newborn up to 10 years (15-28 inch chest)

The patterns can be knit in either DK (8ply) or worsted weight (10ply) as long as a 20sts gauge is achieved. Information is also provided for substituting yarns of other weights.

The other 2 patterns in the collection are the Little Hoodlum (jersey) and the Young Einstein (jacket/cardigan) - all which come with the same versatility and options. The v-neck on all of them makes it easy to pop on a bib for any little rascal or for bigger rascals that complain that they don’t like wool up around their neck.

Yardages of the Hotshot with hood are approximately:
260 - 850 metres (more information about yardages are included in the pattern for the different versions)
