Vestee back

I finished it before Christmas, but between all the snow we’ve had and leaving town for a few days, I didn’t have a chance to deliver it until last night. Baby Nate is not a year old yet, but he’s pretty big so I knit the 12-month size. It fits him perfectly! I’m very pleased with the fit, since I don’t have much experience at all with babies and I was flying blind, having not seen him for a couple of months.

Vestee texture

I think the yarn works well with the pattern. The texture still shows up, and the mottled look will hide stains better than a solid color would have.

Vestee shoulder

There was a tiny bit of pooling, but nothing major. I’m very happy with how it turned out.

  1. Vestee looks fabulous! Can’t even see the pooling you’re talking about. And a perfect fit on a baby… that’s actually pretty hard to do, so great work.
