Milo for Mia

Our little cousin Mia turned five recently, which seemed the perfect occasion to break out the needles and knit up a Milo vest.  I have intended to return to this pattern since I made my first one a few years ago, but somehow I haven't actually worked it again until now.  It should have.  Milo is a fabulous, simple pattern and an awesome way to try cables.  These hearts were my first-ever cables, and I don't know why I feared them for so long.  They were no trouble at all!  Alas, they don't show up very well, but the love is there whether you see the hearts or not.
