The Term Time Vest is the perfect choice for chunky (bulky) weight yarn. It knits up quickly with no seaming and primarily in the round. The vest is easily put on and taken off since one shoulder has a button on the back (out of reach of the littlest babies) and one shoulder is grafted shut. The different cable widths add an interesting design element to the vest without being overly fussy.

Gauge: 14 st to 4 inches in stockinette stitch

Sizes: 6 months (12 months, 18 months, 2T, 3T, 4T) or approximate infant/child chest sizes of 17 (18, 19, 21, 22, 23) inches. As written, there is one inch of negative ease built into the garment because of the ribbing. Whenever possible, use chest measurements to select the appropriate size.

Yarn Suggestions: 1 (1, 2, 2, 2, 3) skein(s) of Malabrigo Chunky or another chunky/bulky weight yarn. Yardage is approximately 80 (100, 120, 160, 190, 220) yards.

Materials: 6 mm (US 10) circular needle, 16-24 inches long; cable needle; darning needle; 2 stitch markers; 1 small button
