  Gertie_T,
     If the vest is too big on you, you could follow the direction at http://www.chicknits.com/ttdownsizing.shtml to downsize it!

This is going to be my first garment! I'm so excited, I ordered the Patons in the same color as the pattern from that Discount Yarn Sale. It takes a while for the stuff to get here (like a month), so I'll probably start it after the holidays. I've been so busy making gifts, I have yet to ever make something substantial for myself, so I'm very excited.

My question for the ladies working on this one is, with the exact recommended yarn, if I choose a small (I tend to hover between a small and a medium size) will it be a good length? I tend to like my shirts to hang lower, I can't tell from the picture if it's short or not..

I'm working on this at the moment too Smiley

Though since I'm in australia I opted to use Heirloom 4 ply cotton in a gorgeous candy pink. I'm only 1/5 of the way through so nothing exciting to report but i'm keen to see pics once others are done (even if they are baggy! Wink )

Gertie T-
I am interested in knitting this vest, and hate seaming... you mentioned you knit this in the round up to the armholes, then back and forth on straight needles from there on up.  What length circulars did you use?  And when you switched to straights, did you put the back on a stitch holder or yarn and then knit the front, or how did you end up doing that?  Any help is appreciated.

I'm so excited! (and I just can't hide it? Ok, enough of that...)

I just ordered my yarn to make this, and it's gonna rawk! (I hope).  Cheesy

Gosh, I *really* need to finish this project! I got discouraged after my gauge snafu, but I think it's going to turn out fine. I just need to apply myself!

Here's how I knit it in the round--I cast on 2 stitches less per side, so a total of 4 stitches less to account for the lack of seaming. I used 24" circulars to knit it in the rounds, then when I got to the armpits, I put the back on a strand of scrap yarn. I kept knitting the front on circulars, but knit back and forth instead of in the round. Then after binding off the front (it's a little tricky, so don't do it over a nice glass of chardonnay!), take the back off the scrap yarn and finish it. Then all you have to do is seam up the shoulders!

Hope this helps. Let me know if you have anymore questions!

Thanks a lot!  I really appreciate it, I hate seaming and always look for an excuse to do stuff on circs.

URGH!!!!!!!!!! DAMN IT! I dont understand how to drop & bind off the stiches. It makes me angry that the book gave no explaniation what-so-ever on how to do this.... unless I missed a page. Can you kids explain this to me one more time, cuz the first explaination was like you were speaking another language. Help!

Im back.... posting in my same post.... Ok, so Im doing size L.... so I knit my 41 stiches, put them on a holder. Now Im gonna bind off... so I Knit 2, leapfrog to bind off thaat one stich, and Ive got 1 stich on the right needle... so what do I do to the next stiches to get "3" stiches on the needle? Im so confused.
