Okay, I found a really nice vest pattern, that I want to try.
I would be learning no new stitches or stitch patterns *good idea* but techniques like arm shaping, for I haven't attempted any kind of clothing item beyond scarves, a stole and the like.
My problem? It is one size fits all.
Um... but 42 inches is going to be down to or below my knees!
I am under 5 foot tall.
The width is good, just the length is too long.
I am afraid of it not draping correctly. I tried to attach a pic, never did that before... it is a free pattern from Lion Brand yarns.
Any suggestions on how or where I could possibly shorten this would be helpful.
