When I was little, family treasure walks were all the rage. Now, I love watching my own children find “treasures” here and there to carry around! This back-to-school basic features a pouch for all things precious to the younger crowd. Vest is knit from the bottom up in the round, then back and forth after a split for the armholes. Pouch is knit separately then attached seamlessly. Shown in size 2 (both samples).
This KAL was offered through the Appalachian Yarns group on ravelry! Designer led KAL and provided for several modified sizes. Check out the discussion and mods here. Design suitable for both boys and girls! A timeless classic with some cute extras.
