~~ MILO Vest ~~

Non cable Milo’s with stripes and contrast yarns

2013-03-01 07.01.29

Special colour-work Milo for a Princesses and Pirates Showcase hosted by Booti Tutu 8th March. This type of knitting takes a lot more work so the price for this reflects the time taken. ♥ This was a 3 month size but could be done in other colour combinations.

XOXOX cable pattern – Ballet pink

Alternate contrast stripes on bodice & hem is also an option with or without a cable.

I am pleased to be able to knit this wonderful pattern designed by tiKKi as it is available in a wide range of sizes and suits boys and girls alike. The Milo vest ranges from NB – 4 years size.

There are five different cable patterns that can be knitted to suit your taste. The cable patterns are: giant cable (see green photo), owl cable, horseshoe pattern (see pink one above), XOXOX cable pattern (see above) & aran braid pattern. I find with variagted wool that the simple large cable looks wonderful.
