I LOVE this pattern!!!

Not that I need to add to my list of 'To Knit' but I love this vest.

It's from the Spring issue of Knitter's magazine found here at Knitting Universe. It's called 'Walnut Twist'. I would generally never like a long sweater or vest this length but this really appeals to me and I love the color. Those that know me know that I rarely sway from autumn colors although I am trying!

Take the video tour of the summer issue! Summer Issue Tour I might have to subscribe to this magazine!

Moments later addendum: WOW! I just remembered I had some Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece (20%merino/80%cotton) in brown that I bought 2 years ago. I ran upstairs to check it out. I've got 5 skeins enough to knit the small which will be fine. I could even go an inch shorter! It will be perfect. The color is 'Dark Earth' ..... that works! Oh my, I don't need to cast on anything else!

This is a lovely piece! And the yarn you have sounds lovely. Such a rich color and such wonderful detail. This will be a classic piece! I know what you mean about not usually wearing anything like "this one item"! I feel the same way about my Provincial Waistcoat!

I had a chance to browse through this issue yesterday. I love the chevron vests - both the one with multi-colored yarn and the plain heather one with the purl stitch accents. The Asian Gold bolero is nice too.

Well, it's not me, but it certainly is YOU - and you've got the figure for it! (And the yarn, apparently, tee hee) Better get crackin'

You're right. this is a great vest. And the fact you have the yarn is karma. You HAVE to knit it--to save the knitting universe!

I love this color. I think chocolate is very "in" this year. Great texture on this pattern.

That's a beautiful vest D. I am looking for a good vest pattern to knit for my mother. This could be a contender!
