Knit seamlessly from the bottom up, Spruce features a cable panel with a garter stitch yoke. The knitted-on i-cord edge neatly finishes the yoke for a polished appearance, while considered shaping ensures a neat and comfortable fit around the neck and arms. The simple textures make for a relaxing and interesting knit with a handsome result. The shoulders are grafted seamlessly for a bulk-free fit that will be comfortable for babies in car seats as well as look wonderfully grown-up for older children. The garter stitch yoke has enough give to make sure the vest fits easily over the child’s head. Spruce knits up quickly on worsted weight yarn and, combined with the unisex design, it is perfect for gifting for any new baby in your life.

This pattern has been tech edited and test knitted.
