Before Christmas I mentioned the cutest thing I’ve ever knit. When I finished it, I wanted to knit about ten more right away. I took it to work to show people it was so cute. It wasn’t delivered until Boxing Day, so now I can finally reveal the cutest thing I’ve ever knit….
He wears it with such style, right?! This is the Viggo baby vest pattern by Drops, available on Ravelry. I used two sock yarns, left overs from socks and fingerless mitts – and there was still yarn left over! It’s amazing to me how little yarn baby knits take. I used two yarns instead of three because I knew the variegated yarn would be busy enough. Although this delicious baby you see here is 5 months I made the 9-12 month size and as you can see he will get good wear out of it.
One of the things that makes it a good baby vest is that it has buttons at the top of the shoulders, on both sides.
My favourite knit of the season, for our family’s most favourite baby! (Seriously, Bushboy is crazy about him, as we all are.)
