Garter Yoke Vest Reviewed by Isabel Stone on 2013-01-28 ****
I really like this pattern, but the finished product in the Chenille T&Q was problematical. There were surprising areas of openness (very loose stitches) and it was very heavy to wear. On the plus side, it was very warm, and looked yummy. I used a pin fastening, to avoid buttonholes in this yarn.

This pattern runs very big through the arm holes. I made it in large for a busty friend using #5 yarn. It fit OK.
Using up my stash yarn I made another vest in bulky homespun with eyelash garter stitches. Although my gauge was correct, it turned out huge. I added a knit scarf collar and crocheted around the armholes to make them smaller. My friend loved it.

I found this to be an easy pattern to follow. No problem with the fit...medium size.

I love the style but not the yarn suggested, It would be great in worsted or heavy worsted.

I made this in chenille. It came out with very loose, saggy stitches hanging out at random. I raveled the whole thing out and did it over with 10 and 10 1/2 needles instead of 10 1/2 and 11 and it was much better. Very easy and quick to do and looks nice. I did make it one size larger than I thought I wanted, since I used smaller needles and it was a good fit. I might try it in a light weight yarn and smaller needles as it is very heavy and warm. It was fun to do and worth a try.
