Sweater Vest for Mari's Baby

I'm pretty proud of this vest. It stretched my abilities. I had to do two things I never had before: buttonholes & edgings. It turned out pretty cute! It's size 0-3 months. Yarn is Bernat Softee Baby, but it didn't turn out all that soft. I don't know why.

The pattern is from the fantastic book Natural Knits for Babies and Moms by Louisa Harding.

Here you can see the pattern of 4 rows of garter and 6 rows of stockinette.

And a close-up of the edging & buttons.
I made this vest for Mari's impending arrival - her baby shower is on Saturday!
