Kids vest, hand knitted, made to order.
This chunky knit top is really versatile. It makes a lovely summer vest, but works equally well as a warm layer over long sleeved t-shirts in cooler weather.
Approximate chest measurements are:
There is some amount of stretch in these due to the ribbed and cable nature of the design. For more info on sizes please message me.
My own children have worn these for sleeping in the warm weather or in autumn and spring to give freedom of movement while playing outside.
Made from wool or cotton blends, these breathable natural fibres are perfect for all weathers.
At Indigosky2Knit I have a preference for using natural fibre yarns and often use hand dyed high wool content yarns or other wool yarns. If you prefer plant based yarns please state this at checkout as I can source both hand dyed and plain cotton and bamboo yarns, as well as other plant based fibres.
Depending on my other customs these items are completed quickly so are often slotted into my schedule when I am short of time making turnover time quicker than other items, usually no more than 10 working days. If you need something in a hurry let me know and I will do my best to accommodate you.
These can be made to order in sizes from newborn. The baby sizes listing is available here:https://www.numonday.com/product/baby-vest-made-to-order-hand-knitted-summer-vest-wool-baby-top-chunky-knit-tank-top/
All Indigosky2knit items are made in a smoke free, pet friendly environment.
I am the owner and founder of Indigosky2Knit. I have been knitting since my eldest sister announced her first pregnancy when I was just 7 years old. I2K was first conceived as an idea while I knitted for my own first baby 24 years later.
Hi I am Davina and I own and run Indigosky2Knit. I opened amost 6 years ago on April 17th 2012. I live in the gorgeous market town of Hebden Bridge in West Yorkshire with my gardener husband and 3 kids.
I love knitting and have over 30 years experience under my belt meaning I offer quality items you can trust. I rekindled my love for knitting in 2009 when my own first baby was born. I decided shortly after my second came along in 2011 that it was time I started making for others too. After making a couple of gifts for friends they exclaimed how lovely everything was and encouraged me to set up and sell some of what I make.
I am passionate about getting yarn crafts appreciated for the work involved and have a preference for natural fibres. With this in mind most of my items are made with little synthetic fibres, although they are good for hard-wearing footwear items and easy care kids clothes. In particular I avoid solely acrylic yarn as it is highly flammable and is best avoided for baby and children’s items. I am however, aware of various needs like offering vegan options and allergy sufferers, so if you see something you like but would prefer it made with cotton or bamboo then please just let me know!
As a cloth nappy user I’d discovered a love of pure wool, which makes excellent nappy covers, adorable clothing you can use over a cloth nappy, but that keeps your baby dry too. I therefore make and offer information and support on using wool nappy covers.
I have a love of natural fibres, and especially hand dyed yarns. I make many items to order so you can choose to have things made exactly as you’d like them, colours, styles, everything. I run an Etsy store where I take most of my orders.
I absolutely love making squishy woolly things for others. It is my aim to make hand knitted items affordable for all, so if you’re on a budget I’m here to help.
I originally started out in April 2009 with just a Facebook page, which cn still be found here at www.facebook.com/indigosky2k, but as of January 2014 all orders are taken exclusively through Etsy (www.indigosky2Knit.etsy.com). There are custom slots listed for all items and more added as and when I complete items. There is also a collection of ready made items. If you see something made previously and would like me to replicate it then please just drop me a message here or on Etsy. I Am willing to make anything on a Your Yarn My Needles (YYMN) basis including adult clothing, please just convo me for availability of slots if there are non listed on the shop.
