This was my first Fair Isle project and I loved making it. I’m already planning another one.

I’ve made this using the portuguese stranded knitting technique (portuguese knitting + purl all stitches).

I didn’t change anything in the pattern because I was afraid to mess it up, but if you’re a woman and you are planning to knit this for yourself I suggest you cast on 31st less than suggested and finish with about 20st on each shoulder instead of 30.

one year later: the vest looks so much better on my boyfriend that I gave it to him :)
