This was a quick knit.Â It took less than a week. The neckline didn’t quite work out as the pattern stated so I winged it a bit.Â Otherwise, I followed the pattern exactly as written.Â The problem was that the vest came out really baggy, especially at the underarms. The fabric was also sleazier than I liked.Â Today, I fixed that sucker by tossing it in the washer with some hot water and soap for 5 minutes.
Yup. I fulled it.Â I like the fabric much better now and it fits snuggly.Â I like.
Hmmm. Looking at this picture, the left underarm looks kind of funny — curvier than the right. Perhaps I should go back and revisit.
The only thing missing is a zipper.Â (I guess that’s a mod. I wanted zippers instead of buttons.) That may be a while.Â I hate installing zippers.
