8ply Vintage Vest and Crossover Cardigan
There's Old Fashioned Homemade and then there's Vintage Handmade. To those of you unfamiliar with our physical store and our shop philosophy, we are firmly in the Vintage Handmade category!
Reminiscent of a bygone era, this exquisite pure merino Vest, cardigan and ensure your special baby is beautifully 'turned out' and is so warm and cosy.
This is such a simple vest to knit, just a couple of balls of soft merino wool and very elementary knitting skills.
I understand this vest and pants are supposed to be worn as undergarments but they are way too beautiful. Imagine the pantees worn over a pair of tights and the vest as a delightful short sleeved sweater. Using the grey wool from the pantees I have embroidered a row of 'lazy daisies along the front and back of the vest. How cute is that?
I chose Zara Italian 8 ply Merino for the vest in shade Snow.
*Please note that this leaflet also contains the pattern for a lovely pair of 4ply vintage pilchers (overpants) I have made our sample from Zarina Italian 4 ply Merino in shade Dove.
