The knitted Vest and Long John’s (Pants) can be for
either Winter or Summer weight. The Vest is very
asy to knit and is for a large size (not specified) but
there is a diagram with measurements to follow.
You can also reduce the size by using smaller needles.
The long John’s are worked on smaller needles for a
snug fit and have a fabric waistband, directions to add
Both are worked in 5 ply Scotch fingering for the winter
weight and 3-4 ply for the lighter weight.
The needles are old sizes so I have included a conversion
chart for reference to modern sizes.
