FO : Vest
Here's my finished vest from Berroco. It's for my boyfriend and I had to do it in black because the store I went to had only a few colours . I even added his name at the bottom (my first time using duplicate stitch )

So far, he's been keeping quiet whenever I ask him when he's going to wear it.

Oh, I love that vest! And the color is just perfect. My husband has been wanting me to knit him a tennis vest, and that pattern would make a nice one. Thanks for posting.
