Comfort Vest
This started out as Lion Brand's Comfort Shawl, but mom requested I turn it into a vest for her, since she loved the color. I always have an easy project I can do in the dark or without looking, and Homespun is very forgiving that way . It's all garter stitch.

It's already on my Ravelry project page with instructions on how to do the front if anyone's interested.

Well isn't that clever!

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

That's very pretty! What a clever idea to turn it into a vest.
If at first you don't it and try again!
