Here are three vests that I made this weekend. Any color combo ideas for my future vests? I only photographed the front of the shorter vest but they all look much the same laced up.

Not too difficult the large ones are very time consuming though! I like to wear them like an apron.

Those are pretty epic!! Definitely not my colors, but still look really nice. What pattern did you use? It reminds me of the Drops Swirl pattern I've been dying to try, just never got motivated enough!
What type of yarn did you use for it?

I love the last one, all long and flowy..  The second one is neat with the different colors.  The first one is very bright, but very cute.

I went patternless for these 'uns.(Full disclosure: I bought a pattern from a lady on etsy but it was poorly written and some how sagged too much because the holes were much larger, so I got the basic idea and ran with it. Quite a waste of $8.99) None of them are exactly the same number of rows or width. I picture a very bossy and saucy little girl in the top vest. All the others are adult sizes. I used cotton worsted weight on all except the black and silver which is two strands of glittery acrylic yarn. I wear a vest like these nearly everyday and the cotton ones wear and wash the best. Acrylic tended to pill up on me.

Thanks for the compliments ladies! You all keep me hookin'!
