The quintessential children’s vest pattern.
A deviation from the classic vest - boxy, funky and relaxed; Milo is designed to keep the torso warm while letting those busy arms run free and unhindered.
Milo is the perfect introductory knit for those new to circular knitting. They also make terrific knits for gifts - no baby should be without a milo.
Milo is knit entirely in the round from the top down. Increases are used to shape the mitred bodice, with a simple cable gracing the front of the vest.
Six different cable options are included to help you create a little milo all of your own.
Cable patterns are in both written and chart form.
