This week on my instagram page,
I unleashed the show ‘n tell pics
of the knitted sweater vests
I made for the little bears!
Yes. They were completely thrilled
to receive these handmade lovlies.
And now you can make your family
as HAPPY as I made mine!!
First thing first,
You need to know how to knit.
Here’s a great tutorial
to get you started!!
Wow! She really makes it simple huh?
Great! So now you know how to knit!! Cool!!
Now I am going to send you away for the pattern
because it is not my own but –
I WILL GIVE YOU A HEAD’S UP,
it’s so easy.
For all three sections
(front, back and neck)
You just cast on 47 stitches
and then knit to the length that suits you.
When you’ve got your 3 sections finished,
Sew them together with your yarn.
Great tutorials how to do that
over at Wool and the Gang!!
I used Hometown Bulky yarn
Size 10 needles
To make this vest smaller,
You can cast on less for smaller sized front & backs
but still keep the neck at 47 stitches
So you can get it over their heads.
Learned this the hard way!!!
Click the picture below for the pattern:
Although, lol, maybe I should mention
it’s not in English!
Don’t let that stop you!!
Just copy and paste
Much love, Sadie
