Last Vest Finished

I just had to do one border on this to finish it. It is done in Jamieson and Smith Shetland wool on 3.25 mm needles. I used three different shades of green for the background and used a Faroese pattern in natural black. Patterned vests are so warm because they have the double thickness. Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends.

Excellent work, as always! I like the blended colourway background with the single colour pattern overlay. I'd not considered a sleeveless cardie before but having seen this beautiful garment, I'm getting inspired! Thanks for sharing your skilled workmanship.

Lovely work and great color choices! As soon as I finish my current alpaca sweater I'm going to knit a fair isle vest for MYSELF instead of for gifting (for a change). Your vest is a great inspiration!

This is beautiful and the colourway is gorgeous. I love the muted background.

It is gorgeous. I particularly adore the way the three shades of green blend and give the appearance of many more colors than are actually there.
