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.
I'm a knitter and a lover of all fiber arts. Could there be enough time in the day to design and knit everything you want?? I keep busy by being outside, getting into trouble, and being a general good pain in the ass!
