Knitting Kit – Simple Kids Vest (Remnants)


Customise your kit
A simple kids vest design for beginner knitters in remnants.
Delivery within the UK is free for all orders over £60 and costs £4 for orders under £60. Speedy delivery & in-store collection available too!

The image shows multicoloured stripes – your remnant kit will be random and not as pictured.

This is a remnants version of our kids vest – a perfect rainbow of colours!

A super simple pattern for an adorable kids vest, which matches the adult version.

This pattern covers ages 2-11, so you can create these little tank tops for every stage of their childhood!

Using just knit and purl stitch, you will create matching panels which you’ll then sew together leaving a gap for the neckline and armholes. You can make it like a slouchy layer or a more fitted top, depending on what your child likes to wear.

Super sweet and perfect for all year round!
