This is my standard 'new baby' knit because I think its such a useful item of clothing to have. I decided to call this pattern the Kauri vest, because the top part of the ribbing reminded me of tree trunks. The Kauri is a native New Zealand tree that grows very large. Its a kind of NZ version of the phrase 'mighty oaks from little acorns grow'.
I'd love to see any creations, please post your links in the comments. You can also find the pattern on Ravelry
