Countdown to Baby Blueprint: Hank Vest

Yesterday, Crochet Me posted my crazy Baby Project Mantra from Baby Blueprint Crochet.

The Hank Vest is a perfect example of my mantra. I designed it for my nephew Henry. He is like many boys, on the go, and when running out to play hardly remembers shoes let alone a coat. This vest can be tossed out the door and yanked on quickly while still in full stride. The extended stitches make for a lightweight fabric so not to have any extra bulk. The worsted weight yarn (Spud and Chloe Sweater - a new favorite of mine) makes this project go super fast to crochet. When fellow designer, Kristin Omdahl, saw it she said her son would call it the dragon wing vest. And I love that. Make your racing stripes in any color to match your little ones favorite dragon!
