Little Lines is a vest for children up to 7 years. The vest is worked in the round from the lower hem up to the armholes before dividing, and front and back are worked flat.
The name comes from the stitch pattern, which is worked all over the garment and consists of little lines of knit stitches worked on a reverse stocking stitch background. To achieve this without having to work so many purl stitches, the vest is worked inside out, the shoulders are seamed with a three-needle cast-off and then the garment is flipped inside out to reveal the true stitch pattern. Stitches are then picked up around the armholes to work borders, and around the neck to work the neckband.

It is written for 6 sizes, as follows.
0-6 months, to fit chest 16”/41cm, actual size 19”/48cm
