Waistcoat Knitting Pattern
This waistcoat is knit in chunky weight yarn 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 to shape this garment. Working with the thick 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 child’s wardrobe essential!
