    Baby Pathfinder Vest

    Once again, I am so happy with the way this lovely little pattern worked out. T&T pattern instructions are so clearly written and the accompanying video tutorials are excellent. I am becoming more and more confident with each successive project. Thanks so much T&T for your brilliant patterns and online assistance. I have made 3 matching Pathfinder vests now - Adult, crossover front with flutter sleeves, size 2 and size 000.

    Suggested fabrics

    Exterior:  I like to use vintage woolen blankets, but you can use any warm fabric such as wool, wool blends, corduroy or velvet.  Fleece and WindPro are also suitable fabrics.  You could also use quilting cottons for a spring weight vest.
    Lining: Cotton, linen, flannel or other soft breathable fabric.


    Fabric requirements

    You will need the amounts listed in the charts below for both lining and exterior fabrics (44 inches/115cm wide).
