I went for the 6months size, and given that large babies run in my family, I'm actually guessing that it will still be autumn when Ziggy starts wearing this size, which is my favourite time of year, so I chose to use a yarn that reflected that. It's Sirdar Montanna in "sweet grass" which I think has a very heathery look to it and makes me think that this should be worn on a picnic in the peak district. Also it reminds me of my aunty Anne who loves these colours, so it's deffinately got to be worn on a visit to see her!
|Hubby chose the very pretty button.|
Honestly, I love this design so much I think I might make another one with long sleeves to go with it because yes, this design has instructions for both the vest and a jumper. It also has instructions for using a secondary yarn for the ribbing or working in one solid colour. It works well with solids, stripes and varigated colours. It's so versitile this has quickly become a favourite of mine!
Now I used a different cast on and bind off than recommended so the ribbing is super stretchy because if Ziggy is anything like me, super stretchy is important! However, since there's a button for the neck it's not exactly required that your cast on have so much stretch as mine does and there is a bind off recommendation that does allow for some ease, although not as much as my preferred method so don't worry about that
