Perfect for those practical knits that we all need, school jumpers and such like. I can see the vest being the perfect way to keep a whipper warm enough but not run the risk of ruining your hard work with mud/sand/paint/snot.
These garments are knitted in the plain King Cole Cherished DK and King Cole Cherish DK (it's variegated sister) which is a smooth and smooshy yarn, designed with babies in mind. I would also recommend looking at our King Cole Pricewise DK, which is pure acrylic, machine washable and comes in lots of snazzy solid colours.
Knitted on 3.25 and 4mm straight needles.
NB: These patterns are sized from 0-7 years so just keep an eye on the size chart to choose the correct size.
