Notes

I don’t normally like to work with acrylic but when my mother in law passed she had lot of it most I gave to my children for their amigurimi but I kept a few to make some items for myself that sort of came from her

i figured out why most people have not done this pattern or don’t finish it and frog it. It is because the author was to lazy to write the second half of the vest front and just tells you to reverse everything from the other side. Well that is good well and fine for an experienced knitted but a novice would probably just give up. to me it was a pretty easy knit 4 days start to finish i did decided to do duplicate stitch for the back part instead of knitting it in. I also adjusted the back some as I wanted a little tighter image so I removed a few stitches and scooted the bottom leaves in some
