|Spring Violet Vest|
started January 16, 2013
When I returned home, I contacted the company to see if the pattern was available and again was told it was not sold separately, only as a kit.
My friend Cheryl must have grown weary of me talking about the vest. Before Christmas she presented me with a wrapped box and said, "This is NOT a Christmas present." I was shocked and pleased when I opened the box to find the vest kit.
The vest is knit on size 6 needles, using three different weights and types of yarn: a superwash wool, a soft twist rayon, and a rayon loop. Specifics about the vest can be found on my Ravelry project page.
The photo on the kit, and on the pattern show the tunic-length vest, but the pattern itself is for the shorter version - not good marketing strategy in my opinion.
It is an easy pattern to follow, but the rayon loop yarn is difficult to knit.
Cheryl, I am still humbled by your generous gift. Thank you!
