Spring is approaching and my little sister was looking for new sweater vests for Marko.
She couldn't find anything she likes in the store, so I came up with my own pattern,
inspired by Marko Argyle Vest I made for him a few year ago.
I started by the back first, easy to start with and pretty straight forward.
I liked the stripe repeat a lot. It gives it a little style for my little man.
Then the front.
Here it is more difficult and requires more calculation.
Lucky for me math was never an issue :-)
As I was making the pattern as I was knitting, I decided that I wouldn't be knitting in the round
so I had to sew the pieces together, something I like less and less.
I managed to master the finishing technique (after so many years) and it is almost invisible!!
Pattern: My own, available soon
Size : 4 to 5 year old
Yarn: Katia Mississippi 3,
Fingering / 4 ply
60% Cotton, 40% Acrylic
Pattern turned out pretty easy and quick, yarn is light,
perfect for spring, summer and fall
as long as little Marko doesn't grow out of it too fast!!
