Baby Alien

For that special earthling. It’s a delight to put something this cute on a wee baby. When everyone who sees him gives an extra big smile, he learns that his planet is a friendly place.

Although the vest front is clearly the more complicated piece of knitting, you may find that it actually goes faster than the back, as you keep knitting to see more of the little alien appear.

The pattern is written for 7 colors but notes this little vest could be made with as few as 4. Yarn shown is Knit Picks Shine Sport.

The left shoulder has buttons for an easier time dressing the baby.
