Instructions for a reborn or baby vest set comprising of a button up vest, cardigan, beanie hat and socks. This pattern is based on the original pattern no. 13 which is still available in knitting pattern book 1 with pattern no. 10 and pattern no 12.
This pattern has been revamped so that the beanie hat is slightly taller, and the socks have a modified heel. The vest now comes in 5 sizes so the newborn size has more of a tailored fit, and the smallest sizes are now in 4ply, making it less bulky for the really tiny sizes. There is now a cardigan to match the vests. All rows are now also fully numbered.

This pattern has been designed by myself so it is in UK terminology. It does not follow the usual ‘shop bought’ format. There are 11 printed pages with clear and easy to follow instructions. All my patterns are tested by independent knitters before they are released, so every effort is made so that they come to you error free.
Although my patterns are strictly protected by copyright, which I ask you to respect, I am more than happy for any items made from my patterns to be sold.
