FO Friday: Five Out of Six Ain't Bad

Happy Friday!

Over the last six Fridays, including today, I've had FIVE FO Friday posts. So, like the title says, Five Out of Six Ain't Bad......

Milo for Little Man (link to Project Page)

Pattern: Milo by Georgie Hallam
Time Frame: started December 25, 2013; finished February 9, 2014
Yarn: Tasmania from Artfibers in #11; unsure of actual amount
Needles: US #6 (4 mm)
Size: 24" (5T)
Modifications: None; I used the Horseshoe Cable found on p. 11 of the pattern
Thoughts: As far as the pattern itself, it's easy to read, and it's not a complicated pattern. The end result is adorable. Unfortunately, the problems I did have were more due to my model (Little Man) being bigger than although I made the 5T size, it fits my 3 year old. Would I make this again? Yeah, but I'd be sure to measure the child first...or just make sure to make a larger size for someone to grow into. Also, I need to make sure that the bottom hem is longer. This one has a tendency to flip up on occasion. I would have made it longer but I ran out of yarn...

Case, in point. It fits Little Man now. Oh well, at least it's not too small so he can't wear it.

Anyway, that's all I have for you today. I'll link up with Tami as soon as I can :)


  1. He looks so pleased with himself in it! How sweet! Nice little vest.

  2. That's why I love baby things, it will fit at some point! Cute vest, cute guy.
