  • Zip reminds me of a bull fight… you hold it out, your little Wild-One runs into it, you zip them down the back as they dash by and away they go! No struggle pulling it over the head or keeping it on because once they are zipped in, they can’t get it off

    Skills Needed

    General knitting skills plus short row shaping. I prefer the "shadow wrap" method of short row shaping.


    Finished Measurements

    • chest: 20 (22.5, 24)"
    • length: 9.5 (10.5, 11.5)"

    Note: Keep in mind that tweaking the gauge gives you more sizing options. For instance, knitting the largest size at 4.5 sts/inch instead of 5 sts/inch will give you a 26.5" chest


    Suggested Yarn

    • 4 (5, 6) skeins Big Bad Wool “Weepaca” (50% washable merino, 50% baby alpaca, 95yds/50gr), or
    • 3 (4, 5) skeins Blue Sky Alpaca “skinny organic” (100% color grown cotton, 150 yds/65 gr), or
    • Approx 400 (500, 600) yds any dk weight yarn that yields gauge


    • US 6 circ 29" long (straight needles will also work)
    • US 6 dpns or long circ for magic loop on sleeves

    Change needle size if necessary to obtain correct gauge.


    • 4 opening st markers
    • Plastic non-separating zipper approx 18 (20, 22)". You can cut the zipper down to size needed so if in doubt buy longer 


    20 sts and 28 rows = 4" in St st..
