Truck is a vest dedicated to all those little boys out there who passionately love trucks. It’s a garment to keep them warm but not over heated when running after the trucks to take a closer look.

The truck is worked from the bottom up with only two short shoulder seams to graft. It has an interesting stitch pattern which gives texture to the finished fabric and stockinette detail where the embroidered truck is located. All edges are worked in 2×1 ribbing for elasticity with folded over bands at armholes and neck for a pretty finish.
