I am too lazy at the moment to slog through 29 pages to find out, but didn't someone post a version of this vest in this thread where they substituted skulls for some of the argyle diamonds? I remember thinking it very cute, which is why I was shocked to see this version of it at Target:
http://www.target.com/gp/detail.html/ref=br_1_1/602-1534946-6305447?ie=UTF8&frombrowse=1&asin=B000R13JZA
You think the designers at Libertine are Craftster members?!

Kadreath posted a green version with skulls in the argyle.  She also posted it in a seperate thread here:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=120342.0

It has a link to her blog where she provides the skull chart, good luck and have fun!

Hey, thanks for the link. I think you misunderstood what I was getting at, though. I was just noting that the latest designers at Target seem to have been "inspired" (read: ripped off) by Kadreath's design. I thought it was interesting is all, I'm not going to make one (I already started one of these a year ago that I have gotten about 6 inches into, and now I'm 5 months pregnant, so it wouldn't fit me anyway!)

i think that is target's secret to success.  they must have people who scour the web and report to them what's hot.  i've found lots of copies of "designer" things there.

Whew!  Just finished cutting the steeks... what a stressful experience.  I'm not so comfortable cutting through something I've worked on for so long, and it has been a long long time...

Anywho, looks like it's going to fit.  Just gotta finish 'er up Smiley

I finished this about 3 weeks ago.  It fits so well in the body, but the shoulders are much too wide. I'm still mulling over how to fix it.  Can't just rip the shoulders back and redo the decreases because of the steaking, obviously, so I'm sort of at a loss.  Do you think picking the stitches up for the ribbing a few rows farther in would work?

What about pulling out the blue stitches on the sleeves, binding off the sleeve stitches at the pattern and folding them under and doing a hemmed edge? It would let you lose some width on the shoulders, but you may not like that look. (Or hemming edges!) Just a thought.

oo that is a thought...I have to rip the armhole ribbing out no matter what, so I'll definitely take a look at that.  Thanks for the suggestion!

I know I'm very late in deciding to make this but I made a swatch today in black and white. I got gauge on size 4 mm needles. Is anyone still knitting this? I'd love some company. I'm a beginner and this vest has a lot of firsts for me: fair isle, steeking, reading a chart and knitting with more than one color so I'm happy to have this thread for support!
