BODY:
Worked back and forth on circular needle from mid front.
Cast on 148-168-184 (204-224) sts on circular needle size 2.5 mm with Baby Merino. Work first row as follows from RS: 5 sts in GARTER ST (= band) - see explanation above, * K 2, P 2 *, repeat from *-* until 7 sts remain, finish with K 2 and 5 sts in GARTER ST (= band). Continue rib like this with 5 sts in garter st in each side until piece measures 3-3-4 (4-5) cm - REMEMBER BUTTON HOLES on band - see explanation above. Switch to circular needle size 3 mm and work in stocking st but continue bands in garter st as before. AT THE SAME TIME on first row after rib, dec 32-36-40 (44-52) sts evenly (do not dec over bands) = 116-132-144 (160-172) sts. Insert a marker 31-35-39 (43-45) sts in from each side (= 54-62-66 (74-82) sts between markers on back piece). REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When piece measures 7-7½-8 (9-10) cm, work next row as follows from RS: 5 sts in garter st, 21-21-27 (27-31) sts in stocking st, slip the last 16-16-20 (20-24) sts that were worked on a stitch holder for pocket slit, work until 10-10-12 (12-12) sts remain on needle, slip the last 16-16-20 (20-24) sts that were worked on a stitch holder for pocket slit, work 5-5-7 (7-7) sts in stocking st and finish with 5 sts in garter st. On next row cast on 16-16-20 (20-24) new sts over each of the 2 stitch holders with sts = 116-132-144 (160-172) sts. Continue in stocking st and in garter st until piece measures 13-14-16 (16-18) cm. Now K 4 rows over all sts (= 2 ridges). Then work DOUBLE MOSS ST - see explanation above (continue bands in garter st as before). READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING SECTION BEFORE CONTINUING! When piece measures 15-17-18 (20-21) cm, work 2 rows in garter st over the first 5 sts on needle (do not work the other sts on needle), then work 1 row over all sts before working 2 rows in garter st over the first 5 sts on needle in the other side of piece (this is done so that the V-neck looks nice). Then dec for V-neck - see explanation above: Dec 1 st every other row (i.e. every row from RS) a total of 12-13-16 (16-16) times. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 16-17-19 (20-22) cm, work 4 rows in garter st over the middle 18-20-20 (20-20) sts in each side (i.e. over 9-10-10 (10-10) sts on each side of both markers) – work the other sts as before. On next row, cast off the middle 8-10-10 (10-10) sts in each side for armhole and finish front and back piece separately.

BACK PIECE:
= 46-52-56 (64-72) sts. Work double moss st with 5 sts in garter st in each side (= sleeve edges). AT THE SAME TIME dec for armholes - see explanation above: Dec 1 st every other row (i.e. on every row from RS) a total of 5-6-6 (6-6) times = 36-40-44 (52-60) sts. Continue in double moss st and in garter st until piece measures 24-26-29 (31-34) cm. Now work in garter st over all sts until finished measurements. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 25-27-30 (32-35) cm, cast off the middle 16-18-20 (20-24) sts for neck = 10-11-12 (16-18) sts remain on each shoulder. Now finish each shoulder separately. Continue with garter st until piece measures 26-28-31 (33-36) cm, cast off.

LEFT FRONT PIECE:
Continue with double moss st and in garter st while AT THE SAME TIME dec for armhole in the side as on back piece and continue dec for V-neck as before. After last dec, 10-11-12 (16-18) sts remain on needle. Work garter st over all sts until piece measures 26-28-31 (33-36) cm and cast off.

RIGHT FRONT PIECE:
Work as left front piece but reversed.

POCKET SLIT:
Slip the 16-16-20 (20-24) sts from stitch holder on one front piece back on needle size 2.5 mm. Work rib K2/P2 with 1 st in garter st and K 2 in each side (seen from RS). When pocket slit measures 2½-2½-3 (3-3) cm, loosely cast off with K over K and P over P. Sew pocket slit to front piece with duplicate sts in each side. Sew pocket opening to bottom of pocket slit (where sts were put on a stitch holder) on the back of piece. Work another pocket slit the same way on the other front piece.

Can you tell me what size the finished item is please, I am knitting the 2 year size. Is it 62 cm ?

DROPS Design 05.07.2019 kl. 01:44:

Dear Jacqueline, the sie suitable for two years old chidren, should be fitting kids who are about 92 cm tall- Otherwise for measurements, please refer to the shcematics drawing which has all the relevant dimension. Happy Knitting!

Geneviève 23.06.2019 - 15:52:

Hi! I just started this little vest and I’m already stuck with the pocket. I have question regarding the markers: do they mark the limit of the back? If they do and if I follow the instructions for the pocket slip, the pocket will be in the back ???? I’m making the 2yrs old size; I’m confused. Help! And thank you.

DROPS Design 24.06.2019 kl. 08:38:

Dear Geneviève, the markers are on the sides of the jackt, work the row for pockets has follows: 5 sts in garter st, 27sts stocking stitch and put on a thread the last 20 sts worked (= 7 sts remain on needle after the front band sts), work now until 12 sts remain, slip the last 20 sts worked on a thread, and work the 7 last stitches in stocking st, then 5 front band sts. This means you are working the sts for pocket before slipping them on a thread/stitch holder. Happy knitting!

Buongiorno Al momento di fare le diminuzione non ho capito se l'ultima maglia prima delle 5 mg se si presenta al rove o devo lavorare a seconda del ferro a punto riso? Non so se sono stata chiara Graxie

DROPS Design 17.06.2019 kl. 15:09:

Buongiorno Anna. Deve lavorare in modo che la grana di riso prosegua correttamente. Buon lavoro!

Anna Maria 16.06.2019 - 10:36:

Buongiorno Per le diminuzione non ho capito Quando dice la prima maglia è a rovescio o a diritto .Sarebbe come si presenta O lavorare a punto riso a seconda del ferro che debbo fare,non so se sono stata chiara Grazie mille

DROPS Design 17.06.2019 kl. 15:09:

Buongiorno Anna. Deve lavorare in modo che la grana di riso prosegua correttamente. Buon lavoro!

Anna Maria 12.06.2019 - 21:23:

Buonasera Non ho capito le diminuzione Quando la prima maglia è a rovescio Sarebbe a dire la prima domo 5 maglie a legaccio? Scusate la mia ignoranza Grazie mille

DROPS Design 12.06.2019 kl. 21:56:

Buongiorno Anna Maria. Sì, è la prima maglia dopo le 5 maglie a legaccio. Buon lavoro!

Anna 10.06.2019 - 17:59:

Buonasera Al momento che devo lavorare il dietro,debbo tagliare il filo? Grazie

DROPS Design 10.06.2019 kl. 21:15:

Buongiorno Anna. Può lasciare il filo attaccato dove si trova e lo userà quando riprenderà a lavorare quella parte. Per il dietro, può iniziare un nuovo gomitolo. Buon lavoro!

Anna Maria 09.06.2019 - 17:45:

Buon pomeriggio Ho avviato 204 mg.Sono arrivata lavorare 10 mg a legaccio ambo le parte di ogni segnapunti,quando devo chiudere i 10 punti al centro mi rimangono 54 mg non 64 Forse non ho capito bene la spiegazione Grazie

DROPS Design 09.06.2019 kl. 18:32:

Buongiorno Anna Maria. Deve chiudere le 5 m che precedono e le 5 m che seguono ognuno dei due segnapunti. Sono quindi 5 m in meno per ognuno dei due davanti e 10 m in meno sul dietro (5 per parte sul dietro). Per il dietro dovrebbe così avere 64 m. Buon lavoro!

Anna 09.06.2019 - 09:21:

Buongiorno Sono arrivata a 20 cm dal lavoro Non ho capito le 10 maglie ad ogni lato dei segnapunti lavorare a legaccio Un'altra domanda i ferri accorciati li devo lavorare fino alla fine? Grazie

DROPS Design 09.06.2019 kl. 11:55:

Buongiorno Anna. Deve lavorare le 10 m che precedono e le 10 m che seguono ognuno dei due segnapunti a legaccio per 4 ferri. I ferri accorciati sulle 5 m iniziali e finali vengono lavorati una volta sola. Buon lavoro!

Rita Roy Chowdhury 06.06.2019 - 04:20:

Can I use regular needles instead of circular needles? Thank you.

DROPS Design 06.06.2019 kl. 07:18:

Hi Rita, Of course you can use straight needles, if you wish. Happy knitting!

Anna 04.06.2019 - 15:11:
