little tiny vest

here is a project from the back log of the past year!  i made a little vest for my nephew’s 2nd birthday.  my sister really likes for him to be sharply dressed, and matching, so i thought i would make her a little vest for him.  i also hate knitting sleeves!!!

vest

yarn colors are so hard to photograph, and this yarn is a bit more teal in real life.  but it was made from a really soft cotton/wool blend that was a superwash yarn, made by spud and chloe.  the pattern was the julian vest, via ravelry.  it was a pretty quick knit, although i did have a little trouble with some of the center v’s, as i just couldn’t get them to come out right, so i modified that part a bit.

 

but it came out really nice and fit him perfectly!!  i really liked the little details of the buttons on the shoulders.  i have a few long done knitting projects to post.  hopefully it will encourage me to finish the sweater that i have been making patrick as his birthday gift last year!!!  maybe for his birthday this year i will finish it.

buttons

as always, raveled here.
