In November 2015 I friend who I had previously made a booties and beanie combo for (for her first son) had another son. So I decided to use up some of my leftover yarn and made her a little waistcoat for her second little man.
Regular readers of the blog will know that I’ve made this waistcoat a few times before. Predictably it’s a DROPS pattern.
As I had a lot of DROPS Baby Merino left in these colours and shades I decided to try using them and made up the combinations as I went along.
I think a plain white one would have been very boring, but I like the little accents the grey and black bring to the waistcoat.
I used some buttons from my stash, which work very well with this combination.
I love this little waistcoat, I am able to knit this in a couple of days, which makes it another perfect little gift to knit for someone expecting a boy. And it’s great for using up leftover yarn!
