Click image for detail

This is a customer requested pattern for a totally unisex vest, with a choice of long or short sleeves. To make it totally unisex, it has buttonholes worked on both sides so that it can be made well in advance of knowing baby's gender, and once revealed, just sew the unwanted buttonholes up and sew the buttons over the top. The vest also has a choice of long sleeves or short sleeves. It has been worked in a different stitch pattern to the original vests, and it also has less buttons! It comes in premature to 6 month sizes.

I’ve used Sirdar Peekaboo and Hayfield Baby Sparkle.

This pattern has been designed by myself so it is in UK terminology.  It does not follow the usual ‘shop bought’ format. There are 8 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.

Please allow 24 hours for manually emailed PDF delivery, especially for international customers, as your daytime, might be our night time. If you have not received your pattern after 24 hours, then please contact me. Happy knitting!
