christmas vest

Pattern: Dr. G's Memory Vest by Kirsten Kapur
Yarn: Cascade 220 superwash in colour #865

This vest is not for me - I only tried it on for a sec as all of my unmodeled shots didn't seem to do it justice. I sent it to my Dad a few weeks ago and I hope he likes it. This pattern is wonderful - designed to honour Kirsten's father who suffered from Alzheimer's Disease. I have made this before and I'm sure I will again.

I am keen on vests right now. I have several more planned. Not having to make sleeves is a bonus.


  1. stunning, chris! hope your dad loves it! and yes, hooray for vests!

  2. Dang, that is nice. I bet your Dad loved it! I have to get mine photographed too!

  3. It's beautiful! The deep green is great and the cables are lovely.

    I'm also loving the less sleevey versions of things. Totally agree on the bonus!
