Monday Making

It seems to be "finishing time"
at my house!
Lots of finishes in a short amount of time.
I began this little vest a few months ago
and FINALLY got up the nerve to stitch it together
and add that ribbing!!
It's the type of knitting, for me, that takes some quiet
and concentration!
;)

I found that fun multi colored yarn (one ball)
and knew I wanted to make something for baby or toddler.
This vest pattern worked out great!

Details:
The pattern uses a fair isle pattern I did NOT follow
since my yarn had multi colors
*blue cotton yarn (from my stash) for the ribbing
and...since I didn't have enough yarn for the whole thing...
I used a BEAUTIFUL
*Autumn Wind lotus yarn for the back.

what are YOU making this week??

  3. Cute vest! I've been wanting to make just a simple cardigan for my granddaughter who will start P-K next year and cannot find just a simple pattern for a size 5. It's discouraging not to be able to find a simple pattern. I'd like one if possible that's done on circs not few seams. I hate to sew knit things together. I sure wish I had my mom's old pattern books. I know there would be one there. It seems that so many of the patterns try to put new things into them to get them to sell. Again, great finish!
