Elizabeth Smith


Chunky Monkey Baby/Toddler Vest (3 months - 4 years)

"Knit in one piece from the bottom to the underarm, then the back piece and each front piece is worked separately," says Smith. "Shoulders are attached using the 3-needles bind-off technique, although notes are given if you'd prefer to seam shoulders togethre by hand instead. Buttonband, neckband, and armband ribbing is created by picking up stitches at the end." This is one of the most impressive simple patterns we have ever seen. For example, the buttonhole row workings are completely written out for every size-- who else does this? 9 pages of impeccable detail, and you're a much more confident knitter as a result. Also, it's fast and terrifically cute.
