Boys need cute clothes too, and this little cabled vest is as sweet as can be! It is knit all in one piece in the round - so it goes really fast. The cables look impressive, but are easy to memorise – and using Patons Classic Wool ensures that this will be warm and practical as well as decorative. This pattern is called Classic Wool Cabled Baby Vest in the print book.

This is based on an old pattern, but it is not the same:
The new pattern has a wider size range, cables were changed for symmetry, the pattern was changed from knit flat and seamed to seamless in the round, new charts, new schematic, written directions added as well as charted directions, new sample, new pictures, new edging, slightly different neckline, all errata corrected.

This is NOT the same pattern and took a substantial amount of time to re-work, re-knit and re-format. I hope you understand that while pattern support is guaranteed with the new pattern, I WILL NO LONGER BE OFFERING PATTERN SUPPORT OR UPDATED ERRATA FOR THE OLD PATTERN.
