Found this beauty via another poster on Craftster (check out Voolenvine's very cool version: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=302368.0) and absolutely fell in love with the pattern.

Here is my take, in Fiesta Boomerang, colorway "Raspberry Mocha":

And it was a fairly quick knit, too. This may be my new staple knitted gift for new baby girls...

My baby is here! And she *loves* her cardigan/vest -- it's a 6-month size, but I think she'll be able to wear it for quite some time, given that the length doesn't matter. Here it is in action:

Boheme is still being worn by my now 1-year old (I knit the 6-month size). Still one of my favorite knits of all time...

I just love this!  It's adorable.  It's been on my ravlery queue for ages and I haven't gotten to it yet!

If i had a baby girl this would be a thrilling gift indeed!  I love the colour you chose.

If it had grown up, it would have made a dreadfully ugly child; but it makes rather a handsome pig, I think.

beautiful! color, length, & baby! I can see that you made yours longer, it buttons on the opposite side and the pattern is different! what pattern is that? and how did you get the edge to crinkle like that? i'm new to knitting and am venturing out past knit, purl, and stockinette... Trying to make a basket weave blanket and have recently learned about frogging (although i seemed to have flipped my loops) but I ended up making the same mistake again and I didn't want to try to frog it another time. anywho, I would love to duplicate (eventually) this for my twins!

Gorgeous!!!  Love the color!

Current challenge is to find a pattern that will enable me to knit one of these in adult size. Very versatile piece!

This is so cute!! Can I get it in a Big-Kid size??? LOL

I also REALLY, REALLY love the yarn you chose.  The colors in the variegated yarn are really pretty and the lace pattern really helps to break it up nicely!

Thanks for bumping this Kimbabwe!
