Little Man Vest

Boys need cute clothes too, and this little cabled vest is as sweet as can be! It is knit all in one piece in the round – so it goes really fast. The cables look impressive, but are easy to memorise – and using Patons Classic Wool ensures that this will be warm and practical as well as decorative.
