"Bow"tiful vest knitting pattern

 A few years ago I knitted  a vest for Little M and it was very popular. Many knitters asked for the pattern but there is not a written one for that vest. I counted the stitches and knitted another one to write the rows.
The yellow one is knitted using 2 balls of  Berroco comfort worsted yarn with 5 mm knitting needles. The chest is 60cm and it is 52 cm long and suitable for 4-5 years old.



For the second vest I used double knitting yarn and 3.5mm knitting needles. 20 gr of white yarn and 30 gr of mint yarn is left. The chest of the vest is 45 cm and it is 40 cm long and suitable for 2-3 years old.
For worsted weight yarn make the button holes in every 12 garter ridges. With double knitting yarn I made the button holes every 10 garter ridges.

k : knit
p : purl
yo : yarn over
k2tog : knit 2 stitches together
c8f : take 4 stitches on cable needle and keep them on the front, knit next 4 stitches and knit 4 stitches on the cable
s1 k2tog psso : slip 1 stitch, knit next 2 stitches together, pass slipped stitch over it

Cast on 168 (47 for right front, 74 for back, 47 for left front)
1- RS: k10, (k2, p2) * Repeat * until you have 10 stitches left, k10
2- WS: k10, (k2, p2)*  Repeat * until you have 10 stitches left, k10
3- RS: k10, (p2, k2)* Repeat * until you have 10 stitches left, k10
4- WS: k10, (p2, k2)* Repeat * until you have 10 stitches left, k10

Repeat these 4 rows until you have 44 garter ridges.

Button hole row : k3, yo twice, k2tog, k3, yo twice, k2tog, (k2, p2) * Repeat * until you have 10 stitches left, k10
WS: k10, (k2, p2)* Repeat * until you have 10 stitches left, k1, drop one yarn over and knit, k4, drop one yarn over and knit, k3

Continue knitting in the same pattern (rows 1-4) until you have 54 garter ridges. We will make  second button holes and set the pattern now.

RS : k3, yo twice, k2tog, k3, yo twice, k2tog, k1, p5, k1, p2, c8f,  p2, k18, place a marker, k16, p2, k1, p5, k1, p5, k1, p2, c8f, p2, k1, p5, k1, p5, k1, p2, k16, place marker, k18, p2, c8f, p2, k1, p5, k11
WS : k10, p1, k5, p1, k2, p8, k2, p12, k12, p10, k2, p1, k5, p1, k5, p1, k2, p8, k2, p1, k5, p1, k5, p1, k2,  p10, k12, p12, k2, p8, k2, p1, k5, p1,  k1, drop one yarn over and knit, k4, drop one yarn over and knit, k3

Yay for more bunnies!


I love bunnies, such cute and fun animals. That is why I always refer to bunnies when I am talking about my kids. And now good news! Yay for more bunnies! My sister is pregnant and soon we will meet her very own blue bunny. As an auntie I had to make some toys for him. I made a bunny teething ring which   fabric design version is seen all around. I really love the idea, basic but fun!
I also made a bunny rattle from Lucia  Lanuka`s pattern which is also very popular. I sent my presents, including 
some lovely little man clothes and a blanket I made, to my sister before he arrives. I dont have photo of all of them but I am thinking and looking for more boys amigurumi toys which I will share later.  I will be making more for him and this time I will give them to him myself (I hope) when I meet him (probably next summer).  That is con of living in another country. You cant catch the news on time. :( 

I have my notes and the pattern for the teething ring will be available soon.
 You can find the bunny rattle pattern here for free. Isnt he cute? :)
