just a boy. and a vestMonday, October 27, 2008
I pretty much love making vests.
Not having to make sleeves is such a great thing.
And I love how taking photos of your children can bring so much joy. Or so much frustration.
This was one of the more joyful times. This little guy just cracks me up.
When I started this, I wasn't following a pattern. I did a gauge with the yarn, measured my guy, and multiplied the number of inches round by the number of stitches per inch. I cast on with the contrasting color, started in a 3x3 rib for 2 inches, changed to the main color continuing in the rib. Changed to stockinette stitch after 2 inches. I then had a little problem with the V, so searched my books, and found Billie. Pretty much followed that pattern the rest of the way.
Pattern: Billie, Rowan Pipsqueaks
