PATTERN DESCRIPTION
SIZING

Covered with spiraling faux cables, this classic children’s vest is sized for 12 months through 12 years and is worked in worsted weight yarn. The project begins in the round with the lower body and then separates at the armholes. The shoulders are then joined before edging the neck and armholes with 1/1 rib in the round. The Eamon makes a great layering garment for girls or boys!
