I wasn’t entirely pleased with my first Milo. The colourwork section looked pixelated in the merino yarn (so much so that my Mum declared the elephants to be “such cute piglets”), and it pulled in quite a bit.
So even though I’m told Merino is the best yarn for babies, for my second attempt at a cute Milo I decided to go with a woolier yarn.
And skipped the colourwork band altogether (I was really traumatised by how much it had pulled in!).
I do, however, want to adorn this with a cute motif. Something small, but cute, giving it just enough personality to make it stand out from a plain vest. I am inspired by this version of another baby vest pattern and am determined to duplicate stitch a whale motif (something like this) in the lower corner. I just haven’t dared to do it yet…
