Three out of five Christmas outfit pieces are complete!
This adorable little vest was knit with size 4 and 5 needles and in Malabrigo Rios in “Ravelry Red.” I followed the instructions for the 6 month size (the smallest size available), but I used smaller needles so the vest would turn out a smaller size. Ronan will be less than 3 months old come Christmas time, and he’s not exactly a large baby.
The chest measures 13 inches unstretched. The design is very giving, so it should last him through the winter. This was an incredibly quick project, and although I hate seaming, I didn’t mind the two small seams on this garment. I got to brush up on my seaming skills, which isn’t a bad thing. (I sure needed it!)
I chose to use two Scottie dog buttons to close the shoulder. I’ve had them in my button stash for many, many years. I’m so glad I was finally able to use them!
