This vest is so soft and comfortable. The front panels are so big, I could unroll them and add buttons to make a full-coverage cardigan. I rolled them up (the edges want to curl anyway – the crochet trim and knit in garter edge don’t help too much) and I can definitely wear this, and I think it looks nice. The only real problem is that the yarn miser in me is looking at the half skein remaining of the fantastic cotton and thinking “If each side of the front were 3 inches more narrow, I’d have enough leftover cotton to actually do something with.”
I really like the lace and the lace rib. It’s dressy, but the cotton keeps it casual enough to wear over t-shirts. I will definitely get lots of use out of it this fall. And a special thank you to my dad for being the guest photographer!
