I've just put up my first knitting pattern for sale, yep, to sell.
It's a tad exciting but I'm also a little nervous, you know, will people buy it?  Will they like it?
It's different from a free pattern , hell yeah.

so in case you're wondering what it is, it's the milo vest pattern.  

I've been knitting a few of these babies lately...
Pattern details:

milo is a quick and simple knit, so easy a beginner could tackle it.

Knit seamlessly in the round from the top down on circular needles, it eliminates that sticking point for many knitters; seaming!!! Yep, no seaming at all to be done here.  

milo is a great little vest for boys and girls alike, it comes in 9 sizings, from newborn (15 inch chest) to size 4 (23 inch chest).  The pattern includes options for five different cables, including the popular owl cable.  You can knit a different milo for every day of the working week.


Designed for 8 ply yarn, this is a great stash buster. The smaller sizes can be knit with just 50 grams of yarn.  It is easily knit on a pair of 4mm 40 cm circular needles. 

The 11 page pattern also comes with a photo tutorial which helps you create neat underarm cast offs.


So where can you get it?
available at all good pattern pdf stores; ie. Rav or my ozebaby store.  (see links over there in the sidebar)

and big thanks to the six people who have already bought it today. Wooot!!!

  10. I've been following the development of Milo and desperately hoping it would come out in a size big enough for my little lady and yay! it has!
    Just going through the checkout now but have already got the yarn & needles ready! Can't wait to knit this one up - now I just need to decide on which cable to do!

  11. Oh yay - I will be buying it once I have finished a few of the things currently on the needles - I agree - you deserve something back from all your previous free pattern love.
