This classic design is worked seamlessly and accented with a front placket, making it easy to slip over a little one’s head. Fabric is knit intentionally loose for breathability during warm weather. Use bulkier yarn at gauge for a cozy cool weather vest. Play around with colors, stripes and buttons to personalize this simply adorable piece.
