Sometimes I just need a garter stitch project. Something that looks completely handmade, like my Grandmother would have made for me as a child. This little vest fit the bill. I love the simplistic, rustic look it has. It's a welcome change from my usual (but still loved) milo vests and looks so cozy on my little guy. I tend to squeeze him just a few times more when he's wearing it (as if I don't already squeeze him a thousand times a day.) He calls it his "Little Fox" vest and tells us all that he picked out the yarn, lest we forget.
I modified the pattern to fit (as it only went up to a 2t), and changed just a couple of things. You can see my detailed rav notes here. Cedar button handmade by my favorite button makers - Wooly Moss Roots. I need to move the button over a bit and sew it on tighter, if Little L ever takes it off so I can do so!
Oh and forgive the saggy pants - It's hard being an almost three year old peanut without a diaper to hold your pants up for you!
p.s. - His hat is this pattern.
