F.O. November 30




I was really worried that this vest wouldn't fit. It seemed so small on the needles. Once it was blocked it came out perfect though.

Project Details
I started on August 22 and finished on November 28. I didn't work on it all the time. I'm sure with the bulky yarn it would be easy to have finished this up in a month or less. I think the size is true to size - but getting a yarn that is super bulky was hard. I used Elann Peruvian Highland Chunky and held two strands together. It was the only way I could get a thick enough yarn. I used a total of 12 skeins which worked out to be just less than 1000 yards of yarn. I wouldn't change a thing about this pattern. I think I will really enjoy wearing this.

  3. Love it!! What a great project, too -- you don't have to knit or sew in sleeves! (I say this as I'm pulling my hair out trying to pin the sleeves into my Central Park Hoodie vest piece. lol) Your FO photos are helping my motivation to finish this damn thing!
