Little Brunswick is a season-spanning vest for kids - the perfect topper to scare away evening chills or cool mornings, or a not-so-bulky addition to a winter wardrobe. The front and back are worked separately and joined at the shoulders with a 3-needle bind off. To accommodate toddler heads and easy dressing, size 2 has buttons on the left shoulder.
The showcase Latvian Braids are worked flat on the front and back and on neck edging for size 2 only.
Latvian Braids are worked in rounds for the Armhole edgings for all sizes and on the neck edgings for sizes 4-14. Complete written instructions and accompanying charts are included. Pattern includes tutorial links if you are not familiar with Latvian Braids.
Pattern has been tech edited. All measurements are listed in imperial and metric equivalents.
Note: Little Brunswick can be purchased separately or as part of an ebook with accompanying patterns for men and women. See Big Brunswick and Lady Brunswick for details.
