All Year Round Vest

I love the idea of this item being able to be worn all year round, over a long sleeved top to add a warmer layer, as a singlet in the summer on it's own, or under tops and onesies as a singlet to keep children warm.

This is the 3-6 month size from the pattern knit in a tencel blend yarn (10ply) by Patons, with a lace edge.

It's evolved to this, 8ply, basic garter stitch (more unisex) hemline, and thicker straps (it could be done with a seed stitch hem if you'd prefer that too). This is knit with Bella Baby Layette, 80% bamboo and 20% wool. It feels lovely and silky!

And while the neck perhaps looks narrow, there's no worry getting these babies over heads. I had to try the one that might fit my *wee* man on him. I'll share a pic but bear in mind he wears size 1 tops and the top I knit was not that size.

And below, what the lace looks like close up
