The first project that called out to me from the new and totally awesome book “Little Crochet” was the “Sock It To Me Sweater Vest”. I love little boys in little sweater vests, but finding pre-made vests beyond the color navy is seriously difficult.
If the vest looks a little small, that’s because it is. The plan was to make the vest for The Baby so I followed the instructions for the 0-6 months sized vest. But, because of my own laziness, I did not do a gauge swatch (doh!) so the vest came out a little big.
Luckily, I like the look of a “shrunken sweater vest” on Big Brother. I still like to squeeze him into an 18-24m robot jacquard vest I adore (which is about what size this little sweater came out to be).
Can’t wait to make another one in size 3-4. This time I’ll start with a gauge swatch. I promise.
Pattern: Sock it to Me Sweater Vest from Little Crochet
Hook: US D3/3.25mm
**in the book this pattern is listed as in intermediate level project and I would agree. Linda advised me to take my time getting the neck shape round of single crochet stitches just right. That was great advice.
