I finished Provincial Waistcoat from IK winter 2006!
The yarn is chunky acrylic/wool blend from Korean yarn market.
I actually tend to think the design looks better in this yarn than in the one used in the book, doesn't it?
I'm satisfied with the overall fit, but in fact I got the "Cross 2" pattern all wrong. The pattern direction was confusing, and I guess "knit same st" should be "knit same st in the back" instead? It's actually the same pattern with the one used in "my so-called scarf" but they put it the opposite way
I didn't find out exactly what I was doing wrong until I got past the armholes, and I chose to continue in the wrong pattern.
