Hooray! I finished my Fad Classic today! Miss A gave it the thumbs up.
Pattern: Fad Classic by Wendy Bernard
Yarn: Blue Sky Alpacas Dyed Cotton in 'indigo'
I really like the way this turned out. I struggled a bit with the straps, but despite a few mistakes, I am looking forward to wearing this vest out and about.
The only mods I made are in sizing: I started with the 34" size on the straps because I have broad shoulders and vests tend to cut into my neck if I don't leave some roominess in the upper back. I decreased stitches after I joined in the round to get the 32" size which turned out just right. I only did 2.5 inches of ribbing at the bottom since the cotton will stretch with wear. This hit right above my pants line. I hate it when you get that (extra) bump from pants closures.
The photos are compliments of my kids and a strategically placed stool. It is awfully rainy here today so excuse the dark photos, but I just couldn't wait!
Have a happy weekend!
