Milo

This little vest is Milo, the brainchild of¬†Georgie Hallam. She’s the talented Australian designer behind Tikki Knits. Her pattern is sized for newborn to six years, with chest sizes from 15 to 25 inches. The cabled column is a “knitter’s choice.” The pattern includes five cabled front panels, among them a very sweet set of stacked owls. I knit the horseshoe cable pattern. Milo is seamless, knit from the top down, and meant to be a bit close-fitting. Couldn’t be easier.

Isaac’s Milo is knit in DK weight Berroco Vintage. It’s an interesting, very soft, but somewhat splitty mix of ¬†50% acrylic, 40% wool, and 10% nylon. I decided to knit the 9 month size to leave some growing room. The vest used just under 60 grams of yarn.

Milo appears on on more than 7000 Ravelry project pages. Patterns don’t reach those kind of numbers without having tons going for them.
