I received a couple skeins of Colinette Fandango in "Popsicle" in a RAOK swap...it's soooo purty! It's a chunky cotton chenille-like yarn. I'm thinking there would be enough for a vest for my baby girl, but I'm needing a pattern. I have Ann Budd's Handy Book of Patterns, but those sizes only go down to a 2T, and "m needing something 12 month size or so.

It's so soft! It reminded me of a parrot when I opened the envelope! LOL

Here I go answering my own question again...

This might work if I scale it down a bit

The gauge on the yarn is 11 st/10 cm (about 2.75 st/inch) on size 7 mm needles (which looks like about a US 10 1/2 to 11), which is pretty close to what this pattern lists, except the pattern uses bigger needles.
