Pattern from Knits for Children and Their Teddies by Fiona McTague. One of the books I bought on sale awhile back.
Made for: One of my bears LOL
So here is Barnsie wearing his new vest. The pattern sort of came from this book. Except I got mixed up and ended up making up part of it as I went along. Didn't help that B's tummy is rounder than the pattern called for. I can empathize with that. Happens to me too. The weirdest part was the ribbing that goes up the sides of the front and around the neck. I just thought that I'd be picking up stitches to knit it. But instead, I was to just knit long strips then sew them on. And I totally didn't understand the button holes. I figured out how to make them, but couldn't figure out what I was supposed to do in between. B likes it a lot!
