This is such a quick and easy knit - I think the hardest part was actually getting the pattern, the first two places that I tried to order it from it was on backorder! I started it Thursday night (along with another project) and worked on it maybe an hour here, an hour there, and finished it up Tuesday afternoon. Instant gratification is pretty nice sometimes!
It's knit in one big rectangle, you fold it in half and sew up the sides, leaving an armhole opening and voila!
I've had this yarn laying around for a while - it was on clearance at Webs online. I've tried making 3 different sweaters out of this yarn, with no success. It's a very pretty handspun/hand dyed, but the thick and thin differences in the yarn make it really hard to get guage on some sweaters.
One note - when you put even a few hours into something to wear, remember to try it on with nice clothes. Yoga pants and a ratty tshirt will make ANYTHING look horrible....
What can I say? I was home due to the snow day.....good thing I thought to put this back on with nicer clothes......
Details - ribbed vest
Size - small (40")
Yarn - Cascade Jewel hand dyed, 3.25 skiens
Mods - I cast on for the small, but knit the length for the M/L. And I am so glad I did. This is borderline to short for my taste, but I haven't blocked this yet either....
