V-Neck vest in Kureyon

I just finished up the Boogie Vest from Knitty’s Spring '04 edition. I made minor modifications to make it a v-neck rather than the split neck the original had.

I made it in Big Kureyon, colorway #7. Little Knits is having a pretty good sale on this yarn – almost 50% off. I think they must have sprinkled some catnip in the bag or something, too, because my cats tore into the package before I did! And one continually stole the yarn, she’d cuddle with the vest when I wasn’t knitting it, she slept on it while it was blocking… I never thought I’d get it back. :teehee:

Thanks for looking!

That is gorgeous! So much prettier than the example on the pattern!

just lovely!

LOVE the color :cheering: You did a excellent job on Vest :notworthy:

I was thinking the same thing!
Great job. :cheering:

I love it. Great job! :cheering: :cheering:

Aww, thank you guys! :muah:

The colors are so pretty! You did a very nice job!!

i have Big Kureyon that i don’t know what to do with and i think this might be just the thing

i LOVE how yours came out! very cute!

what size needle did you use?

Oh that looks so pretty! I’m making the exact same pattern right now and I was wondering how I could make it more of a v-neck. How did you do your mods? :muah:

I used US 10 needles.

On every right side row, I decreased by one stitch at both the armhole side, and next to the cable until I had the same number of stitches left as I did on the active stitches on the back. I made a medium, so I reduced down to 14 stitches on each shoulder. I didn’t say that very well, but I hope I sort of made sense! :??
