Vests are versatile garments for babies and easy projects for knitters. As an extra layer, vests won’t hinder little arms and legs while still keeping tiny bodies warm without overheating. Also, if made from cotton blends, they can be worn as sleeveless tops in warmer weather. Best of all, they are quick projects for knitters!

The cute I-cord ties add a nice touch, but can be omitted.
