patterns and knitting and crocheting oh my
I'm glad to see vests are coming back in finally. I used to wear them quite a lot and after a few years I realized no one else was wearing them anymore. And if you like to do patchwork, vests are very useful formats for that. The pattern in the vest is Simplicity 2866. It has a vest with ample flat areas where patchwork or embroidery could be added. It comes with five seperates. Just using that one pattern alone in 3 colors would give you quite an autumn wardrobe suitable for work and casual nights out. It has a jacket, pants, a vest, a jumper, and a blouse.
I did work on a new knitted hat in my favorite Patron camo yarn. I crocheted a tam out of this same yarn and now I'm knitting a beanie out of it. Too fun.
