Here’s the vest neatly packaged into small plastic bags by row motif. This might disturb the faint of heart, but yes it’s as bad as it looks. I ripped out the whole vest yesterday just as I was about to start the steeks.
I did a trial fit and realized that it would turn out much too large, even though it was a medium. Normally that’s the right size for a sweater that sits at my hips but got thinking about how short this vest is. It will sit well above the largest part of my hips so I can go ahead and make it a few inches smaller to fit the bust area better.
I’ll just add that this is my first vest ever so it’s been a little hard to tell what would be a good fit. I’m sure the second time around it will knit up just as fast and I should be able to show some progress next week.
