Milo for beginner?

Post by lydz » Tue Apr 22, 2014 8:10 pm

I really want a milo for my baby girl, and I'm keen to have a go.
I've knitted a couple of scarves and a hat, (a while ago). Is milo achievable for a beginner, or am I dreaming?
Anyone have a pattern, or do I just buy one on revelry?
TIA

Absolutely do-able for a beginner!!!
And yes just buy it through Ravelry :-) it's a nice simple pattern that once you've done one you'll do many more!!!
All the best :-)

It has very good instructions too. There might be some bits you don't get perfect or need to read over to understand but you will learn some really useful stuff too.

Definitely give it a go. Such a great item too, my DD (4) still likes to wear one I made her when she was one (although it's mostly too hot here).

Very easy pattern for a beginner :D
You can do it without any cables down the front if they look a bit daunting.

Yes go for it! A Milo was the first thing I ever knitted and I managed fine, and even the cables are actually surprisingly easy. Just do what the pattern says and it will magically turn into an actual garment!!!! This still amazes me lol. When I did mine, from memory the bodice turned out a bit big, so I would follow the hint that says you might like to use smaller needles for the bodice to avoid it turning out too loose.
