I just got the pattern on Friday, and the yarn is on the way (black and white too) I hope I can't make it through-

I just started this vest on Friday - I knit on it ALL weekend, and have finished chart one (frogging 14 rows at one point...).  My row gauge is off (24 rows/4 inches instead of 30), but I knit the first chart as written as I prefer my sweaters longer, and I've modified the second chart and will begin on that tonight.  I really hope my modifications work out, but I'm loving this vest already. 

I'm using Jaeger Merino in gray and red - I love this yarn!

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?

wouldn't it work just to use a sewing machine to sew around the ideal place for the ribbing to start, cut your knitting back to that point (leaving a little knitting so it doesn't unravel) and then pick up stitches behind the seam line and knit the ribbing from there?

I'm casting on in a few days, my white yarn is on back order and I only have two skeins  Undecided   so I'll just knit with the yarn I have for now.

I'm obsessed with this project - I've had dreams about it the past 2 nights...  I'm hoping to finish it up this weekend.  Last night I set the arm steeks, so I'm making good progress.  If only work didn't get in the way...  I have a 3 day weekend, so it is possible that I can finish this up by Monday. 

And I'm already planning my next one, although I really should do some other projects first.

That would have worked too...but I don't have a working sewing machine (nor do I know how to use one). :-)  I took my own advice and just picked up for the armholes about and inch and a half farther in.   I just folded the columns to the outside of the picked up stitches under as I would have done with the normal steek rows and reblocked.  It worked out pretty well.  Looks great now! 

Thanks for the suggestion!


CrafterInIL...is that a little pug-sized Urlacher jersey?  Awesome.  Go Bears!

Yes - it is a Pug-sized Urlacher jersey to match his papa's jersey!  He looks great in it too.  Here's the pic full size:



Back on topic - I only have 20 rows remaining until I get to steek, so I'll definitely be doing the steeking this weekend.  I may just machine sew the steeks though.  I can't wait!

Has anyone ever shortened this pattern. I made the Entrelac socks and I thought that it would be cool to make this to go with them... but i wanted a cropped version. Any recommendations?

I finished my vest and posted it http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=199200.0.  I loved knitting this, but the fit leaves a bit to be desired for me.  I do plan to make another one in the future.

CrafterInIL, that looks amazing!!
I have a problem, I'm almost done knitting the ribbing, but something is wrong in my pattern with chart A for sizes 34-42. It starts at row 31 and that can't be right, right?  Huh  I've emailed Eunny but she's probably very busy because I haven't heard from her yet. Has anyone else had this problem? I really want to start with the chart as soon as I can. Suggestions? I'm knitting the vest in size 40".
