"What's the difference between an orange?" "It's a vest, because it has no sleeves." This was the first "joke" my husband told me when I first met him. I thought it was the dumbest thing I had ever heard. He thought it was hysterical. So when I finished this vest last night and asked him what he thought, he started with the joke and then told me he wasn't really fond of vests.
This was a really quick project, maybe 10 hours total. I used Lion Brand Wool Ease, an H hook and a stitch pattern from one of my crochet books (I can't find the exact book at the moment). I whip stitched the front pieces to the back and edged the entire vest in double crochet.
Next up on the hook is a basketweave baby blanket made from superwash merino wool that I purchased from WEBS. It is so soft and has a lofty feel to it. A friend is due any day now, this needs to get done ASAP. I still don't have any edging ideas.
