Our Big Little Yarn Vest top is an easy knit if you’re brand new to knitting. Using just knit and purl stitch, the vest top has a gentle rolled over neck and sleeve openings.

It is a gorgeous layer or can be worn on its own. Available in 5 different sizes ranging from UK8-26. It is knit in our Big Little Yarn which is a chunky washable merino.

You can make the vest as cropped or as long as you like, and you have the choice of adding a short rib at the bottom if you prefer that look. A beautiful repetitive knit that is easy to make and so versatile to wear.

A great intro to your knitting journey!
