I'm loving this vest I recently finished. It's from a free pattern, Hiker's Waistcoat. The pattern isn't well written, so it requires some adaptation and decision-making on the part of the knitter.
I only did minimal shaping compared to what the pattern dictates, but I don't like my clothes to be overly fitted. This version is very wearable.
The yarn I used was reclaimed from a thrift store wool Gap sweater, so it was an extra-thrifty project. I like this polka dot ribbon I found to reinforce the button bands. I think I needed some Spring color to wear, especially since we're getting another wave of rainy storms.
