FO: Baby vest

Another baby gift crossed off the list. I think I've almost got them all done. This little cutie is Milo by tikki. The pattern is fantastic: clearly written, lots of size variations and 5 different cable details to choose from. I decided to skip the cable detail for this one as the color is so vibrant. I feared the detail would be lost. The next vest I knit up will be in a solid color and I'll definitely add the cable. It really gives the vest a polished look.

I used a worsted weight wool for this one and think it's sized for 9-18 mos. I'm not good at estimating yardage, but I think it took about 150 yds. of yarn. As always details can be found on ravelry.

What a fantastic vest! I was thinking how great because it would keep baby warm but isn't bulky. Nice work.
