Product details

Baby Bluejay is a charming hooded vest for little boys and girls with great texture and lots of special design features. This is an intermediate knit that requires knowledge of picking up stitches, being able to “read” your knitting in pattern, increasing and decreasing.

This cardigan vest begins with a stable ribbed edge and is knit from the bottom up. After dividing for the armholes, each section is worked separately with shaping for the neck and armholes. The shoulders are created with a 3 needle bind off and then stitches are picked up around the neck opening to create the deep, cozy hood with a series of increases. Once the hood is bound off, stitches are picked up around the edge and a ribbed button band is worked to finish the piece. A sweet pompom provides the perfect finishing touch, if you so desire.
