Pattern: Pembroke Vest by Kirsten Kapur
I love this vest! Petite Purls is a new online source for knitting patterns. Their calling is to make fabulous designs for the toddler in your life. After only the first issue, I am in love. Whimsical and stylish. I have made several patterns by Kirsten Kapur, and found them all to be well-written, intuitive, and enjoyable knits. (See Dr. G’s Memory Vest and the Thorpe Hat). This vest was no exception. Next time I will add a decrease in the center of the front neckline ribbing to keep it looking neat. I also had a bit of trouble with the twisted stitch pick up in the center neckline – it seemed to just make more of a hole. I would try harder next time to keep it tight.
