Notes

What an adorable vest! I used the free 1year old sized pattern from Pickles, and just upsized it a bit to fit my 2 year old birthday boy.

CO 90 stitches
Split for armholes as follows: K 20, BO 10, K 30, BO 10, K 20. Then I cast back on 18 stitches for the top of the arm hole.
The arm hole is just slightly too tight - I would probably make it a tiny bit bigger - maybe cast on 20 stitches.

I did another round of yoke decreases and knit a few more yoke rows just to make it proportional.
