Cooler weather means it’s time to layer! Made using the included rocket & moon charts, this sweater vest will win “cool points” with your little guy! Change up the color scheme and it’s easy to make this sweater vest into something any little girl would be happy to wear as well.

Pattern includes detailed written instructions as well as two small charts for the rocket & moon design. (The entire pattern is not charted, the charts are only large enough to show the rocket and moon, and I include written instructions on where to place them on the vest front.) I write my patterns with the novice in mind, so don’t be afraid to try this if you’re not yet sure you have the skills needed. There is nothing in this pattern that you can’t learn from a quick You Tube tutorial!

I am always happy to support my customers, so don’t ever hesitate to e-mail me with a question if you hit a snag while you’re knitting one of my designs!
