pebble for mr. s



i tried to upsize this adorable vest (it's a free pattern with oh so many ravelry projects to browse!)by using a 10 ply yarn and size 6mm needles, but the same amount of stitches as in the pattern.




it is a bit tight on the photos but my little guy put it on right away on top of several layers of t-shirts and it’s ok so after blocking i think it will fit fine for a couple of months. he noticed that it’s the same yarn as my shalom that i was wearing when taking the photos, soo cute!

it’s really a pity about the yarn (cascade yarns ecological wool), that it scratches and itches like mad. i still have plenty left but this can only be knit up into something that will never touch an inch of skin. still, i love the rustic look of it and i have also just made the sleeves of my shalom longer to make it more usable in the cooler months. will share that soon!

It looks so sweet on him, Sylvia. And it's such a lovely looking wool - it's a shame about the itch factor. xx

This has become my favorite pattern and your vest looks great! How cute of your wee one to notice the match! I have been thinking of casting one on in something other than wool since the south really doesn't have too much
need for wool. Maybe a nice, soft cotton.xx

This vest is on my Year of Projects list. I hope to get to it soon. Its so simple and cute. The Shalom is on my mental list too. Great pictures by the way.

Such a beautiful brown. I've tried upsizing the pattern as well. Not too successful so far, but both pebbles will be passed on as 'baby dresses'. I'm still determined to try it again.
