  1. Ahh! This picture made me chuckle! So cute!

  2. confused big time ! will search for a different pattern

  3. Easy easy easy! And quick! Would be a great "go to" pattern for an emergency baby shower or for making multiple vests for hospital donation. Only change I made was to do hdc instead of dc (US terminology) to eliminate the holey-look, making a closer weave. Good pattern.

    1. I am having trouble with the straps and back. Did you follow the pattern as it is or tweak it to work for you?

  4. I got so confused with the straps...could you please do a revision..I would even pay for the pattern...
