Twin Vests

Twin Vests

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.

Vest for Lily

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.

Vest for Max

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.

  1. Gorgeous, especially like the shade of pink. Could you let me have the pattern sometime please as I would like to make it for a bump due in the summer.

  2. You and Lizzy are so fabulous. If I were to decide to knit a baby gift, by the time I finished the poor thing would most likely have outgrown it!

    You two just whip stuff up in no time. Amazing.

    I did finally finish Diane’s second pair of socks – so now I have made three pair from your pattern. Honestly, I love this pattern. The socks fit like they were knitted right in place.

    Thank you again for sending the pattern. I am not done with it yet either! I have a lovely turquoise hank waiting in the wings for a cast-on!
