A good friend from where we lived in North London has a son who is the same age as Luke and I knitted him a little granddad waistcoat in November 2013.
There are very few boy patterns out there that I love as much as this one. And I have knitted a few of them, for Luke and for other people’s children.
I love this navy blue, and I used DROPS Baby Merino for it, like the DROPS pattern called for.
The other great thing about it is that it knits up really quickly, even though the yarn calls for a 3mm needle size.
The buttons were in my stash, but were ordered from TextileGarden at some point.
I love the simple stockinette stitch of the bottom of the waistcoat and then the double moss stitch at the top, it makes it look extra chic.
