Nobel Prize is a classic vest with a very strong cable in the front. The large, complex cable is enhanced by the simple and classic refinement of the shape.

This striking vest is worked from the bottom up is wonderful looking on both girls and boys alike. It is designed to be comfortable, yet has less ease than a standard pullover.

A note about size: it is always a good idea to measure the size of the chest of the child the sweater is intended for before choosing a size. You can easily modify the sizing of this garment by choosing a larger or smaller chest size and working the length associated with another size, for a custom fit.

Nobel is the third design to be released as part of my “Young Gentleman Knits” collection. The design is available both as an individual pattern and as part of the collection. Please note that the purchase of the collection represents a significant discount comparatively to the cost of purchasing the patterns individually, and I am not able to give any refund if you buy the individual patterns and wish to buy the collection at a later date.
