Baby: 2 Vests

(Knit & Crochet)

A friend asked me to make two vests for her boy, who just turned one year old.  She wanted one in blue color, and the other in beige.  I knit one, and crochet the other.
Una amiga me pidió que le hiciera dos chalecos para su bebé, quien acaba de cumplir un año.  Ella quería uno en color azul, y el otro beige.  Decidí hacer uno a punto y el otro en ganchillo.

* Knit Vest

Worsted yarn, in Country Blue
Lana mediana, en azul campestre. 

It has a round neck, but the open part in the front give it’s a V-look.
Tiene cuello redondo, pero la parte abierta al frente le da una apariencia de cuello en V.  

* Crochet Vest

Fine Alpaca yarn, in color beige, with a brown sc border.
