Add the Little Shoreline Vest to your little girl's outfit when she needs a little added warmth on breezy fall days. This cute vest features Sunday Short Rows along the hem and a easy garter stitch button band. It is worked back and forth in one piece and fits sizes 3 months to 8 years. From Swoon Maine, a wonderful collection of children's and women's patterns. Errata: Should say “with larger circ and using the long-tail cast on…” Everything except buttonbands and the neckband are knit with the larger needle.
