Pattern updated 17 Mar 2014. Please make sure you have the current version, as there were significant changes and improvements.

This dressy cabled vest is made with easy-care superwash wool using contrast cabled rib edges. A striped back adds an unexpected twist. Keep it subtle and classic with muted hues, or go all out with the contrast.

Sizes 0-6 months (6-12, 12-18, 18-24, 2-3 years).
Finished chest 21 (22, 23, 24, 25)” to be worn with up to 4” of positive ease, which provides plenty of room for layering.
Finished length: 11.25 (12, 12.75, 13.5, 14.25)”

Uses 2 balls of MC (all sizes) and 1 ball of CC (all sizes). The 2-3 year size uses almost the entire ball of CC, so you could buy an extra ball to be on the safe side.

Cables are charted.
