Looking for a great knit for your fella but don't want to go to the trouble of making an entire sweater? A Vest for Charles fits the bill and is worked all in one piece with historical precedent and a Jane Austen connection. One knitter even added fantastic little pockets for her son's pocket watch! Here are some other favorite finished projects:
ArchaicDome's A Vest for Scott with lovely buttons and a yarn choice that really shows off the Diamond pattern
A Vest for Guillem by laracroft - Guillem looks so happy in his!
Doesn't Terry's vest from dayep look lovely in this color?
I would bet money that Scott is wearing his vest by simplyamy at Rhinebeck (I am now triply sad that I didn't make it to NYS&W in 2014)
And Emmett looks pretty happy with his vest from meredithn
