YES! It is the "I-won't-wear-it-vest". While you are looking at this picture imagine me doing the happy dance. (Just ignore his crazy "posing"...)
I have another FO and my dear husband is wearing it, too! The only complaint I've heard so far (there had to be one) is: it's too darn hot! Duh, it's darn cold outside, it is supposed to be warm!
Here is a detail of the neckline:
I am pretty pleased with the outcome. It actually looks like I had imagined it, it could be a bit closer to the neck, though. The article by Véronik Avery about short rows in the new Interweave Knits was very helpful. Thanks, Véronik! (...also for the grafting tip, though it's a lot of work!)
Just remind me next time that a special neckline is enough and that one doesn't have to have side slits - I am not convinced I made a good choice with those.
Yarn: I ordered 9 skeins of "Classic Elite Tweed 03" in "charcoal" (143 yds/50 gr) and used 402 g of the 450 g I had (including the swatch).
Needles: I used a 4 mm needle because I knit loosely and 4.5 mm (as given on the label) wouldn't give a good stitch definition
Gauge: My gauge was 20 st/28 rows for 10x10 cm
This yarn is soft to begin with, but after it's washed it gets even nicer. The only negative thing I have to report is that it tears quite easily, so cast on carefully and use a couple of shorter threads when sewing with it.
