MIL's request
My mother-in-law asked me to make her a waistcoat--basically, a V-neck cardigan vest. (Isn't that called a waistcoat?) I told her I would when I finished my Christmas knitting. She's 73 and very old-fashioned and won't wear anything cute. She's very pear-shaped and I'm worried about fitting her.

When I learned to knit last year, she told me it was a waste of time and money. So I'm kind of sad about the whole thing.

I've been looking around for a good pattern. I'll buy it if I need to, so if anyone has a link to a good pattern for sale, I'd really appreciate the link. I wasn't able to find the right one on the free pattern websites, but there's so many I'm sure I missed a few.

I can't knit in the round or do steeks yet, so I need to do it on straight needles. I really don't want to do all stockinette stitch (that's why my own sweater became a UFO halfway through), and would prefer a simple lace or cabled pattern, if anyone knows of one.
