crochet - vest




And here is the vest in action. I have a mission to adorn my son in this sweater vest for as long as it fits him. This is an important mission, as I also have one to keep him dressed in his plaid and cord pants while he will still let me. I let him choose his own clothes of course, as long as it includes such pants and said vest. Isn't motherhood fun? This vest, was, again very easy. Its worked in half stitch, while the ribbing is single stitch on alternating sides. I followed a pattern, thus revealing my inability to do so. I just can't stick to all those rules, so I made part of it up. It was small so I added an inch to the side and left out the neck band as my kid has an inexplainable fear of tight neck bands...and the last thing I need is for him to get stuck in this one and henceforth refuse to wear it. So, here it is in all its neckbandless glory. I like it so much I think I'm going to make myself one. All hail the sweater-vest love!

Lovely pictures all round. I'm just getting into knitting so I'm in awe of anyone who can do more than either a square or really long scarf lol!
