Baby Vest

Where did September go? I blinked and missed it. I was looking on Ravelry for baby knits to use some beautiful rainbow yarn I got at last years Bendigo Wool Show. I found a vest pattern by Sam Lamb. I loved it and decided to give it a go. It used a few techniques new to me. Knitting from the top down without side seams and making raglan sleeves. The pattern was great, the instructions were very clear and it knitted up quickly. I think I finished it in 3 days. I did not quite have enough yarn to complete it all in rainbow so I used some contrast on the bottom band and the selves.
I had previously knitted a hat out of the rainbow yarn using a Debbi Bliss pattern. It makes a cute outfit.
Happy knitting.
