Rough, tough and ready to go! Squall is the perfect top for your little adventurer. No sleeves to get wet, this vest keeps the body warm without hindering movement. Use up your worsted leftovers to create three stripes as shown, or as many as you like. Full modification instructions given to adjust the length of the garment and change the number of stripes.
Squall is a good pattern for knitters who can work in the round and are eager for a new challenge as the stitch pattern is simple and easy to remember. The shaping is minimal so you can concentrate on the stitch pattern.
The basket cable stitch pattern is both charted and written in full and the pattern has been test knitted and professionally tech edited.
Cover: Isla is a petite one year old, wearing the 6 months size, the top has not been adjusted to her length.
