The Little Sailor vest is a baby vest featuring a traditional sailing boat. The vest is inspired by vintage clothing, and is the perfect traditional item for a baby’s wardrobe.

The vest is knitted from the bottom up in pieces. The boat is knitted on a stocking stitch background using the intarsia technique. The hem, armholes and necklines are knitted using 2x2 rib and the armholes and necklines are picked up and knitted after the garment has been seamed. The shoulders are fastened using buttons to allow for easy dressing.
