I have just finished another baby item. It is a vest of my own design. I took notes, but have not looked at them to see how detailed they are. I start a project with nice easy to follow notes and by the end the writing and abbreviations are so cryptic I can’t decipher them, and I wrote them. Yikes!
The vest is a 2×2 rib. The cable twists are done every other row and are staggered. I knit this in the round to the arm holes, so:
Row 1: K2, P2, Twist2, P2
Row 2: K2, P2, K2, P2
Row 3: Twist2, P2, K2, P2
Row 4: K2, P2
At first I intended to add some ribbing around the arm holes and neck edge but I decided that 2×2 ribbing would look funny and I didn’t have enough yarn to continue the twisting pattern. I just did one row of single crochet to finish the edges.
Close up of the neck:
These pictures were taken while the vest was blocking, to stretch the rib I stuffed it with plastic bags while it dried. The yarn is Perfection by Kraemer Yarns 30% Domestic Merino 70% acrylic, which is machine washable. Always a plus for baby wear. I hope this will fit a 6-12 month old? Babies vary so much so who knows?
