neighbourly knitted vest

Ta-da! It’s finally done! The project I started right before L’s birth was presented to my girl on her 3rd birthday. 

Things I love about this pattern: 

:: The boatneck — an easy on/off sweater for a wiggly toddler
:: The large button accent — a fun way to add individuality to the sweater
:: The top down knit — no seaming!
And the thoughtfulness behind the idea of this design by Jennifer of JCasa Handmade. So perfectly suited as a birthday gift for my BIG girl. 


Yarn: Stylecraft DK (main grey colour) and Noro Silk Garden (contrasting colour)
Pattern: by JCasa Handmade 

I left the ribbing around the armholes off, and next time I would extend the length a little longer (by about one inch or so).  


The button I chose for K’s Neighbourly is cut from a walnut-shell. How perfect, huh? 

The pattern was so simple to knit that I’m thinking some more Neighbourly vests are in order for a couple of other special little ones with birthdays coming up, too!

  1. I love this little vest and you chose marvelous colors. I can see where the looseness at the bottom would appeal to a young one. If I could, I would make one for me! And I would love it if you made a scarf for a college-bound orphan — I can’t believe you don’t have red yarn. I could loan you some (haha).
