Trackwork provides warmth without the hindrance of sleeves, perfect for busy babies and children. The peeks of hand painted yarn show of it’s beauty without being overwhelming, and give the knitter an opportunity to use a special skein of yarn.

You can choose to knit the button up vest, or work the top in the round for a popover version with no buttons.

The simple stitch pattern works up quickly in DK weight yarn, while the colourwork bodice provides the knitter with some variety before the finish.

Trackwork is worked from the bottom up, the initial stitch pattern evolves into the colourwork pattern, providing consistency amid the busyness of colour and the centered double decreases at the raglans provide structure.
