Notes

06-01-2016

I tried it in on my dress dummy (before blocking the main piece as suggested) and found it might be a little small in the arms, so I added 5 extra rows (no decreases) on each front and 10 rows along the back. Good thing I had some red Paton’s Grace laying around! I pinned it again and now I know it will fit. I’ll use up the remaining Grace on the hood, then use Anne Circulo as intended. I feel better now, I’m less nervous about running out of yarn. I can’t wait to wear this!!
I suggest if you make this to try it on before and after blocking, and more is better since this is supposed to be a drapey vest anyway. It sucks when things don’t fit and I’m determined this will fit.
