Baby Vest in Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock Yarn

  

This cute baby vest pattern is written so that both machine and hand knitters can knit this pattern.
It is a fast project and because it uses Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock yarns, there are alot of fun colors to choose from. Also, because it uses a sock yarn, it washes and wears very nicely. 

Sizes 20.6" 22.8" & 24.2" require only 2 hanks of Shepherd Sock.

Sample was done in Shepherd Sock Rainbow #601.


from Angelika's Tyler's Poncho: a poncho for children.

This pattern is perfect for beginner knitters. It is designed to take little or no concentration during the knitting of the panels. If the gauge is a little off, the design is such that it makes little difference, if the poncho is a little bigger or smaller. But best to be on the bigger side. Poncho can be done in a single color (try multi colored yarns, 2 colors or 4 colors.)

Sizes: 4 sizes ranging from 4 yrs to 10 years.

Yarn: Bulky weight yarn that gets approx 3.5 sts per inch. 2-color (red & yellow) model was done in Muench's Tessin Yarn. This is the largest size and took 3 balls each of 2 different colors for a total of 6 balls in Tessin Yarn. Multi color model is Lorna's Laces Shepherd Bulky in color Wisteria. This is the smallest size. This size took 3 hanks of Shepherd Bulky Yarn. I have many bulky weight yarns that will knit beautifully. Check my yarn standards for more options!

Materials: 350 (450, 550, 660) yds of bulky weight yarn. US#10 needle.

Pattern includes tips and ideas because it is hard for me to stop chatting once I get start! Small size shows plain neckline, while larger size has a retro-60s-look neckline.

Gauge: 3.5sts per inch.
