1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / men's knitting patterns. on: April 01, 2007 01:42:15 PM
Hello all, this is my first post and for some reason I'm nervous. Anyway, I've been knitting for several years now, but haven't advanced out of the realm of shapeless knits--loose hats, tons of scarves, etc.

As winter ends, I've decided not to knit any sweaters or anything for myself until fall, and in the meantime, will focus on clothes for my boyfriend, to add my fashion influence to his wardrobe (because he promised he'd wear anything I make for him). The problem is, though, that every men's pattern I've seen is subpar. Unattractive. Not very cool.

My dilemma, though, is that I'm looking for a men's sweaterVEST. I've found tons of sweaters I can modify, etc., but I want an attractive vest pattern. I have a yarn in mind (Tahki Yarns Soho Bulky Tweed), but no pattern. I've looked at Berocco's Peter, which is a great vest pattern, very basic, but it eats up SO much yarn... I checked the gauge, and it works out, but I'd end up using about 20 balls of yarn, which would end up as a $160 vest. Which is far past my budget.

If anyone could PLEASE help and direct me to any mens sweatervest patterns, I would REALLY appreciate it ! And if you have any attractive men's patterns in your bookmarks, please send them on over !

Thank you, sorry for the wordy post !

-Steph
