Notes/Mods:

Hmm... buttons...
Hmm… buttons…
  • Hood retained from a project (Weekend Sweater) that I wisely abandoned and frogged before I finished it.
  • Added buttons and buttonholes.
  • From the photos on knitty this is intended to be an open-fronted waistcoat but I tend not to use/wear things I can’t fasten (the exception being my Vitamin C cardigan). As an open-front it probably would fit a 44″ bust.
  • I  (heavens) crocheted three loops to the waistcoat so I can button the hood on. The buttons on the hood match those on the waistcoat.
Crocheted loop for attaching the hood.
