This End Up Baby Vest

Monday, May 18, 2009
"This End Up" is a relatively straightforward baby vest with some textured detail at the front and back waistline for extra interest. The vest is particularly designed to show off handpainted yarns without worrying about pooling. Garment is knit flat to help with avoiding pooling differences at the neckline. Ribbing at the armholes and neck is picked up after seaming.

This cute topper for baby uses just 1 skein of Stitchjones Grand Designs Handpainted Worsted (shown in I Want Candy). It would also look great in Stitchjones Dyepot Worsted.
