Looks amazing!!
So how hard is it to make really? I want to try but it is mighty intimidating...know of anything that might be a stepping stone below this project?

Thanks

Thanks! Honestly, I wouldn't be afraid to try this vest. The Fair Isle part is easy- it's only two colors, and the longest stranded part is only over 5 stitches. The only tricky part I think is how much goes on with this vest at once- decreases and stuff. But it just requires awareness of what you're doing I think. Definitely no special talent. I say go for it!

I think I'm going to start on this soon. I just can't decide on colour combos. What do you guys think of knitpicks frost with cinnamon? I've never seen any of their yarn in real life so I'm not sure.. I dig brown & turquoise together though...

Be careful if you use knitpicks merino. If you check the vestalong website (http://vestalong.blogspot.com/) you can see the issues everyone had and Eunny gives advice on how to fix any issues you may have.

thanks for the warning! I guess I'll try something different. Has anyone tried Paton's classic wool with any luck?

i wouldn't totally rule out the Knitpicks Merino style.  yes, i did use it and ended up with a GIGANTIC vest, but that's my fault not the yarn's.  i'm planning on making another vest--one that actually fits me--and i'm going to use the merino style again because it is 1) cheap as can be and 2) so very velvety soft.

I don't think paton's classis would do well on this.  The pattern calls for double-knit guage yarn and Patton's Classic is heavy worsted.  You'd have to do a lot of adjusting and math to make it work.

Looking back, my post does sound like I'm saying don't use KnitPicks Merino. That's not what I meant though, I LOVED the knitpicks merino yarn, it just takes a bit of adjusting to make it work in this pattern. Although some people used it and theirs turned out wonderful, so who knows.

Just wanted to clarify!

Yeah, I'm liking my Knitpicks Merino- makes for a cheap vest. My gauge is slightly off, but I think it'll be ok.

I started one with Patons merino and the gauge was really off. I tried several needles and I got the stitch gauge but I never got the row gauge, which is essential on this. It can be done with a different row gauge but I takes some math. I didn't want to think that much. I do love the new colors for Paton's merino though. The too teal is going to become several fleted clutch purses for friends.
