Arlo and Alice

Arlo & Alice is a unisex baby/child sweater vest pattern and is the “mini” version of my pattern Abbi Shawl Collar Cardigan.
It is sized from infant – 8 years, is completely seamless and would make a perfect little layering piece for the fall & winter for both boys and girls. It uses heavy-worsted/chunky-weight yarn, so it’s a fast knit. And because instructions are given for two versions (stripes all over or stripes at the bottom), you can also have lots of fun with color.
Additionally, a photo tutorial is included in the pattern for how to create the optional patch-pocket, shown in the photographed “stripes-at-bottom” version.
Both of the samples photographed used Berroco Vintage Chunky. The “stripes-all-over” version was knit at the 0-6 month size and the “stripes-at-bottom” version was knit at the 2 yrs size. Some other great yarn choices would be Cascade’s 128 Superwash or Quince & Co’s Osprey.

Pattern Cost: $5.50
