Ribbed Vest



I ran into this pattern on ravelry last week and stopped by my local yarn store to pick up the yarn and pattern to make one for myself. I knit it up in four days with a little break in there to help Jon with his office floor.





The vest is actually knit flat and then folded in half and sewn up the sides to make the arm holes. It's reversible and the pattern is one size fits all with a nice thick, bulky yarn, so it was a fun and quick knit.

  2. Oooh, this is great! I have been obsessed with gray as of late, but I also love the shape of this. I might be finishing a sweater in the next couple of days. Which is funny since it just got warm yesterday. ;)
