Tasca is a seamless baby tunic knit with my unique side-to-side construction!
You’ll cast on for the right shoulder, work across the front and back necklines, work the left shoulder and then “zip” up the sides with sweet seed stitch panels. The square neckhole with mitered corners makes it easy to slip over a babies big ‘ol head. I love baby vests for keeping their torso warm while giving their arms the freedom to move!
Tasca for Babies is part of the Tasca Collection, which also includes Tasca for Toddlers and 4 adult versions of Tasca!
