Finally done! My first Milo.

I love, love, love this pattern. So simple, but so cute too! My only mods on this version was to do a picot cast off on both the sleeves and the bottom. I wanted it to look a little prettier for my pretty little girl :) I did the giant cable option also.

This one is done in Woolganic in the "Samsara" colour. It's lovely and looks just like butter. I can't say enough good stuff about this yarn.

I had actually finished this vest in the same yarn already, but I'd knit the 18month size with the owl cable option, and it was just a little too big, and looked a little stumpy since I made it shorter. So I ripped that out and started over and this is the final product. The yarn held up really well to being knitted and frogged and knitted again.

Very happy with it!
