sweater vest

pattern: i kind of winged it.
i started with a provisional cast on and first knit the bottom of the back up and over the shoulders. i casted off for the neck. i knit the right and left front panels separately, shoulder down, increasing on center edges. once at the desired length, put the fronts on stitch holders. i picked up the live stitches along the fronts and back, overlapping at the sides and center front. then ribbed down.

make what you will of that terribly brief explanation, but it was quick and fun and very very soft. other than occasionally feeling like a jedi, i just love wearing this cozy vest!

stitches: stockinnet at body and 1x1 ribbing at bottom
yarn: cascade's baby alpaca chunky / color: mocha
needles: us7, us8
