Baby Vest Cardigan!

Originally uploaded by prymnumber
Hey! I tried steeking for the first time with this vest! The steeking part was easy enough, but I should have used wool or a wool blend. The cotton yarn did not "grab" well to each other and I ended up adding a second crochet chain to the edge to secure the loose ends even more. It did make the vest cardigan very quick to knit and the whole thing was a fun exercise.

However, unless the next vest cardigan I make is completely stockinette, I will not steek but rather do the entire thing in once piece. I spent more time securing this baby vest than I spent knitting!
