This is my first post with a FO and I just want to say thanks to HelenaJane for the awesome pattern.

My sister had mentioned she liked a sweatervest I had made for myself and well, obviously with us being sisters I didn't want to make her the same thing! I struggled with a few different ideas I had but they never looked right (meaning I ripped at least 3 times!).

I saw the Lelah pattern and fell in love with the lace, so I made some modifications to the original pattern and turned it into a v-neck sweatervest with picot edging.

Nice variation!  It's so great to see how everyone modifies this.

I love the V-neck. What a great idea--I like the pattern much better with the neckline you designed.

I agree with everyone else... this is a really neat alternative to the original design! Great work!
