FREE Vintage Pattern – Retro Girl’s Seed-Stitch Vest – 5 ply wool

Here is a pattern I have been wanting to knit for ages. It is from a Patons kids pattern book from the 70s.

The original pattern is knitted in Bluebell 5ply crepe (26 sts per 4 inches) which is quite expensive these days. So instead I have substituted Brown Sheep Nature Spun Sport – 5 ply-Balls (24 sts per 4 inches). It would make a lovely warm vest done in wool for winter, or substitute Brown Sheep Cotton Fine for summer.

Adjust your needle sizes accordingly and be sure to do a gauge swatch.
