Oh So Warm, Easy Knit Vest



Another finished yarn project yipeee…. This one for a warm winter vest, see pattern here: Lion Brand.

This was a very easy and quick knit. It would be an excellent beginner’s pattern too.

 I made it in a Lopi Bulky 100% wool yarn in a beautiful wine color (the photo does not do the color justice). I made a couple of changes, added 3 toggles not 2 as in pattern. I also did a 2″ border along the fronts, not the 2 stitches as in pattern. It really came out nice.

Then, lo and behold I found a brand new pair of cord-jeans in this exact plum color, that I had never worn. They will be perfect when I’m down another 10 lbs. and weight loss continues, slow and steady.

If you are looking for a fun, easy and attractive knit vest, you might want to give this one a try. I’m glad I did.
