These are super useful - they bring an outfit together and add a bit of extra warmth without the bulk on the arms so great under coats but also for fiddle faddling in the garden or garage. Honestly, I kind of want one for fiddle faddling in the shop. I'm going to recommend stitch markers
to keep an eye on where the stitch pattern ends and the stocking stitch begins.
These patterns have been knitted in King Cole Homespun DK
. You'll need 4mm and 3.25mm needles
, along with a stitch holder
for the tank and either six or seven buttons for the waistcoat depending on your size.
