Here is my adorable boy modeling his new vestee sweater — pattern on knitty — knit up in Peter Pan Velvet Touch in the Lupin Velvet colorway. I chose this yarn because it is really soft and Tristan may wear this with nothing under it this summer as a coverup. I also had it in my stash. But, I used 4 skeins of it and every skein but one had at least one break and one skein had two breaks. Maybe I just got a bad batch but all those little balls of yarn were annoying and gave me a lot of ends to weave in – yuck.
Pattern: Vestee from knitty
Yarn: Peter Pan’s Velvet Touch in color 1224, Lupin Velvet
Yardage: less than four 114 yard skeins
Needles: US size 7
Gauge: 4 st/in
Modifications: I chose to make it for my size 24 month/2T child by knitting to a larger gauge and increasing the body length before the sleeves by 1/2 inch. I knit it with short sleeves and a hood.
