Hi, I'm a new member from here in soggy Northern Virginia, and I hope someone out there can help me find a pattern. I seem to remember from the 70's and 80's the classic white or ivory Wimbledon tennis sweater vest, the one with colour piping. I'd like to knit one up for my adorable 4-year old nephew for Christmas - yes, I am quite the slow knitter!

Thank you for all your help!

A search on Ravelry (free to join) turned up these. I wasn't sure if you wante sleeves on the sweater or not:

What a nice gift and how clever you are to start early. I'm a slow (but persistent) knitter myself. Enjoy!

Your request reminded me that I had this pattern booklet with some tennis attire.  Not little one sizes, but awfully classic looking for adults.  Maybe you would like to do one for yourself.  I sure enjoyed getting it out and looking thru again. 





 And all the women who were wise of heart spun with their hands, and they kept bringing as yarn the blue thread and the wool dyed reddish purple, the coccus scarlet material and the fine linen.   Ex. 35:25
