Sweater Vest - Complete!
Model Tom in Crocheted Sweater Vest
OK, one holiday gift completed, many to go! I finished my brother's sweater vest. I crocheted it with Cascade Wool. The color is called "Smoke." I loosely followed a pattern on the Lionbrand site called Fisherman Crochet Aran Vest. The old codger in the photo doesn't look ANYTHING like my brother, but the style is perfect for Ken who is a woodsy kind of guy.
I asked one of my co-workers,who is approximately the same size as Ken if he would model the vest for me so I could photograph it. Tom graciously obliged. He's so G.Q.
This was a relatively quick vest to crochet. I used a size "G" crochet hook, and since most rows are double crochet, it grew rapidly. I will definitely crochet this vest again, with a few variations.
