Tov Baby Vest

December 10, 2017








Woolfolk Tov DK. I have fallen in love with its amazing stitch definition, easy handle and cuddly softness. But those words don't quite give it the accolades it deserves. It's new this season, is 100% wool, and has a color selection of gorgeous grays, saturated blues, goldy browns, a white, and a plum that is yummy. Don't you love this lovely raisin color? It suits my grandson really well. There is the slightest hint of color movement within each stitch, very subtle, but just enough to add a touch of rustic homeyness to a very uptown fabric. Tov sailed across my wood Caspian Knit Picks (always my number one needle choice) but I cannot imagine this yarn being needle fussy in the least. I did not block the vest because it didn't need it; the well-mannered stitches lined up like little soldiers from the get-go. Also, it's well-priced for what I consider a luxury yarn, so Tov jumped to the top of my list of best DK yarns. I'm looking forward to using it again, a sweater for me, in a cobalt blue I'm swooning over. 

This handsome baby vest pattern is free and so practical. A vest keeps a young one warm without restricting their active little bodies in any way. I knit it in a size two so my almost 5 month old grandson will wear this vest next year. I've already styled it in my mind: jeans and a white crewneck tee. I can imagine him running around on two chubby legs next year, but right now he is content enough to sit on our laps and listen to me sing or watch his grandpa make funny faces. Chubby cheeks, baldy head, and charcoal blue eyes wrapped around a gummy smile. We melt. Just melt.

I know you love wool just as much as I do.
I found this Woolfolk article to be so interesting.
I love knowing that Woolfolk supports
animal welfare and safe land management AND
produces magnificent yarn.
Invaluable.

    1. Yes, grandson, and he is quite the living doll. He is here today, and napping now, but he has learned to flirt and be bashful and hide his head while smiling. Dying here.

  3. I think the baby is thinking "Do I look like him."

  5. Hi Kristin,

    You do such a great job with links! This yarn company sounds amazing and I have signed up for their newsletter so I can be reminded of them .... 15 month shopping ban on buying wool! 😏

    I love a vest too and they are always so darn cute on little ones.
