I started making these a while ago for my friend’s gorgeous twins Max and Lily, the pattern was suggested to me by Lizzy and I made a newborn one for baby Ailsa in bright red (which I failed to photograph!) and liked the pattern so much I decided to make some more.
Lily and Max had their second birthday recently so I have made the 3yr old size in the hope that they will fit at some point over the next year.
I really like the cable on Lily’s vest, it’s ‘hugs and kisses’ (or noughts and crosses to you and I), weird to block though.
I wanted to make Max’s vest a bit more boyish so I finished the bottom in rib rather than garter stitch but I don’t think I cast off very well. I have since learnt of the variety of cast offs available, the crochet cast off would have made this much neater, sigh. Live and learn.
