FO’s: Another 17 Vests

Back in July I posted about the 19 vests I knitted for milliemanu last year. Well this year I knitted another 17 vests for her, it’s the same pattern as last year, but she picked some other colour combinations, as you will see now.

FO’s: 19 Vests

Yes, you read that right. Since last September I’ve knitted 19 vests in various colours and sizes for the lady from milliemanu. I wrote about two boleros a few days ago.

I used this great DROPS pattern, but instead of adding the texture the pattern calls for I just knitted stockinette stitch all the way, making them actually quite a fast and easy knit. Of course because it was a DROPS pattern I also used DROPS yarn, DROPS Merino Extra Fine to be exact. It’s a lovely soft yarn that calls for 3,5-4mm needles, yet another reason that it knit up quickly. So without further ado, here are the 19 vests.

FO: Twin Waistcoats

Late last year an old work colleague of mine asked me to knit a pair of matching grandfather waistcoats for her adorable twin boys. I used one of my favourite patterns for boys from the team at DROPS. I’ve knitted this pattern a few times, for Luke, my nephew and for a few other people. It always looks adorable when little boys wear it and it is a great, easy and quick knit.

My friend picked the grey, which works really well and I decided to use similar buttons, they just had a different tint to them, one set yellow and the other set green. And look at the gorgeous boys in their waistcoats, and aren’t they just so very handsome!

Two adorable boys in two lovely waistcoats!
