Newbie Vest

a brand new baby knit


$5.00

 

Your little bun is fresh from the oven and ready to dress, but dressing a new baby is a tricky business. The Newbie Vest makes it easy. This sweet little vest has buttons at the shoulders and on the side, so you never have to tug anything over baby’s head. The front and back are identical, so you cannot put the vest on backwards. With two options and little required yardage, you can knit this vest again and again. Want to get some extra wear out of your newbie vest? Just remove the buttons and reattach them as baby grows.
