This basic garter stitch waistcoat is knit in chunky weight wool in one piece from the hem to the shoulders. It is knit in garter stitch and it is a great project for a beginner as only few very basic techniques, like increasing and decreasing, are used for the shaping of this garment. Working with the bulky yarn is also oh-so fast and fun!

The step-by-step picture tutorial will take you by the needles and lead you through the pattern. The result is a wonderfully warm and fluffy body warmer that looks cute with dresses and sturdy with pants! Every kids wardrobe essential!

Sizes: 0-1 years, (1-2+ years), 2-4 years and (5-7+ years)

Finished measurements:
Chest width: 44 (56) 66 (74) cm
Length: 24 (28) 38 (42) cm

These 4 sizes can be each worn for a long time!

Gauge: 12 sts x 24 rows is 10 cm in garter stitch

Getting the right gauge: to get the 12 st x 24 rows in garter stitch gauge you will need a pair of 35-45cm long knitting needles or a 40-80cm long circular needle between 6mm-8mm. The size you need varies a lot depending on how tight/loos you knit.

-100 (150) 200 (250) grams/metres of chunky weight wool

Make sure also to use chunky weight wool. We love the Icelandic alafoss lopi. Incase you use another yarn make sure to check the gauge to get the right size. You can also create the chunky yarn by holding 2 pieces of thinner yarn together.

-1 large button buttons of around 1.5 cm wide

We sell also the KNIT-KITS in our webshop
