UKHKA 84 Waistcoats and Slipovers (preemie - age 2)

Ladies and gentlemen: we have here one of the most useful patterns ever devised, ideal for using up odd balls, stash, and oddments. Since the pieces are beautiful, too, we are firmly in William Morris territory. Look how deftly the designer has you edge all the ribbings, with the contrast colour! Nothing prevents you from using another colour altogether, of course. We love the V or crew sweater vest option buttoning at the shoulder; naturally, the cardi vests don't need that.

From the publisher: "The main aim of the UK Hand Knitting Association (UKHKA) is to raise the profile of hand knitting. It does this through 'Learn to Knit' classes held throughout the UK, 'Relax and Knit' stands at all the principal UK Knitting and Sewing shows, and by the introduction of National Competitions showcased at the Knitting and Sewing shows." To this end, no specific yarn is recommended-- just choose the appropriate weight of something you like and make sure you meet the gauge requirements.
