Does this yarn look familiar? It should. This is the same yarn I salvaged in my tutorial: How to Deconstruct a Sweater and Save Money on Yarn . This once-loved sweater of mine has been turned into a super personalized vest for my little niece-to-be. It’s perfect to put over a long-sleeve onesie, and its lack of buttons makes it baby-friendly (for those of us that never quite trust buttons, no matter how well we anchor them).
A word of warning:
this vest is not for those afraid of seaming, because it is knit in pieces and stitched together afterwards. Luckily, the garter stitch is very forgiving for newbies.
A second word of warning:
because I used salvaged yarn, I can’t provide a link to an exact match. So, your finished product won’t look identical to mine. I have, however, recommended a very close alternative, or you can choose any yarn you’d like (as long as you can knit it to gauge, 20 stitches = 4 inches in garter).
