FO: Deep V Argyle Vest
I don't think I've posted a FO here before, so thought I'd start!

I loved knitting this vest. The pattern was well written and easy to follow. This was my first big colorwork project, and it leaves me wanting to do more!

Pattern: Eunny Jang's Deep V Argyle Vest

Yarn: Jaeger Merino DK, 3 skeins gray, 3 skeins red

I ran out of the main color yarn for the neck ribbing, so I used the contrasting color.

I don't love the fit as much as I loved knitting this, but I will wear it. I probably should have knit a size larger.

Comments/criticism welcome and appreciated!

Great job!! :cheering: And I think it looks nice on you too -- you've got an hourglass figure -- and if you've got it, flaunt it, I say :wink:

It is just gorgeous!

I love that vest, it looks so nice on you! That would look awesome with a button down shirt underneath.

Thanks for the nice comments! I definitely plan to get a button down shirt to go with this, probably white. I tried it on with a gray one that I have, and it didn't look right. I'm holding out on the shirt so I can wear it too.

Nicely done, PugMom. The colors are a very classic combo and it fits you well.
