When Little Red Riding Hood went to visit her grandmother she was in for a big surprise. She was expecting to find her dear old granny all tucked up and in need of some tender loving care. But not to be…

This little vest, designed specifically for Red Riding Hood Yarns, captures the essence of Little Red’s surprise and resulting quizzical questions.

Looking closely at the cable and with a bit of imagination, you may just see those big eyes and perhaps even those big teeth, that so puzzled Little Red.

Knit top down, beginning with saddle shouders, it is a modern version of what Granny may perhaps knit. Baby sizes feature a tab shoulder to make it easier to dress baby.

Cable is both charted and in written form.

Circular knitting
picking up stitches
working a cable (from chart or instructions)
German short rows (optional)

This pattern was exclusive to the RRHY Winter Yarn Club 2012 for a period of six months. It became publicly available March 1 2013.
