Otarrea is the basque word for basket, as the main pattern of this little vest is a knit and purl basket pattern. It’s a one skein vest, for a 2-3 month old baby, so it is a good stash diving pattern for that stray dk yarn skein that fell off a bigger pattern.

This pattern belongs to a series of baby clothing patterns I’m creating as my son grows up, “A Little Boy’s Knits”.
