Warm Vest Knit

This beautiful book with enough yarn to knit 3 of the patterns were a gift from Mr. Jewels at Christmas. There are so many wonderful and beautiful patterns in this book it was really hard to choose what to get started on first.

I picked the Warm Vest pattern and it did knit up really fast once I was able to figure out some of the stitches.  My brain struggled for awhile trying to get it. I thought for sure I was going to go ask for some help, but after fiddling around with it for awhile I finally got it.

It was knit in two pieces very similar to each other the only difference was the neck on the front.  After they were finished I learned how to do the mattress stitch to get it all put together, found the perfect little button and there you have it, warm vest in a beautiful yarn on a cute baby.

This pattern does call for sleeves for the girl version of the pattern, but since I was using a color changing yarn, I just felt it wasn't doable. I love how it turned out and my model is especially adorable.

It's so cute! I love the changing yarn color--it makes it look even more advanced. And spring is such a great time for knitted vests. She'll get lots of good use out of it.
