I love these two photos the best. The first photo gives a good view of the vest (including the armhole) and the above photo just says "happy" to me.
The vest is knit in Knitpicks Comfy Sport yarn but any sportweight yarn would work. If you can knit/purl for the rib pattern you'll find the slip-stitch mosaic pattern easy to follow as well. The shoulder seams are joined with a three-needle bind-off and the sleeves are picked up and knit in the round.
I love the orange/brown/yellow combo with Max's coloring, but any three complimentary colors would look great. His Mom loves the vintage look of this vest.
For the back /side shots of the vest I'm going with these two photos:
