The Little Layer Waistcoat – Knitting Pattern


This cute waistcoat is a quick and fun knitting project and a perfect layer for Spring.

Size small in Mustard/Size small in multicolour

A perfect Spring layer, this cute boho waistcoat can be knit in a single colour, remnants or stripes.

An intermediate pattern, it is made in sections, joined together then a rib added around the neckline and the armholes. You can knit it up in around 6 hours and then layer with a floaty dress or shirt & jeans.

We’ve made ours cropped (to around 26cm) but you can go longer to suit your style.

We love it knit in different coloured stripes, but it is a small enough project to be made using remnant yarn too.
