Looking for an easy yet interesting knit for the little one?
Stig is a simple and elegant vest for both boys and girls – starting with a provisional CO you first work the back shoulder section, continued with working the fronts separately and finished with working the body in the round. Edges and all as you go – when you’re done, you’re really done!

All sizes has been properly test knitted. Since the test knit I’ve moved all sizes down one “step”, to make sure the garment won’t be too tight and will be wearable for a while!
