This is a free pattern that only comes in one size – a size 7. Luckily for me, Older Daughter is 7 years old. She is a rather petite 7 year old, and I think that the pattern would fit a larger 5 year old quite easily. I substituted a garter band for the zigzag hem detail specified in the pattern.
I had to plead to get these photos taken yesterday – something about being 27°C made the model quite unwilling. Fortuitously, the vest co-ordinated well with her outfit chosen earlier in the day. Today the weather has dropped to about 17°C, and she is wearing it voluntarily. The pouch pocket has lots of appeal in the 7 year old world.
Needles: Addi Metal 60cm fixed circulars 4.00 mm.
Yarn: Bendigo Woollen Mills Harmony in 268 Rose. I have approximately 150 grams left if anyone is desperately googling it for a project (and am happy to send it to a crafter in need). Lovely yarn for a kid’s project, but has a slightly nubby texture that really shows the decreases. I had a slight arithmetic fail with the first lot of decreases, and they don’t line up perfectly.
