Pattern Description:

This a textured vest knit from the bottom up, in the round, then split at the arms and the fronts and back are knit flat. The back is knit in stockinette and the fronts utilize a garter rib stitch pattern.

I personally love Malabrigo worsted for against baby skin, but if you are concerned about washability, Malabrigo rios is a great substitute. The colors are gorgeous, both yarns are incredibly soft, and both will give you proper gauge.

I will be working this pattern up in a range of sizes, and will be ready soon. There is also a matching cardigan pattern available and I am working up a hat to match.
