KNIT CROCHET BABY TOP VESTY

free knit patterns, baby top, sleeveless,


This is a great KNIT pattern for a sleeveless baby topwith a little bit of crochet around the neck and armholes.

This was a wonderful quick project, I really needed a break from crochet and remembered this stitch from way back, way, way back CIRCA  1980 I think.  My mother-in-law had knit a lovely baby cardigan using this stitch, and back then, I used the stitch to make a scarf/shawl.  Obviosly it took me ages to make the scarf, maybe that's why it remained embedded in the recesses of my brain... amongst all the other useful/useless stuff stored away in those grey cells.  Anyway let's get on with the pattern.
