Sexy Fall Vest

I've nominated this vest before but I think the timing may have just been off (who wants to knit an argyle vest in the summer?). But I believe in it and I think it's super sexy and would work well for all body types.
It's called the "Deep V Argyle Vest" from See Eunny Knit! The pattern can be downloaded here


I think it looks great, is sexy, and we could use a wide variety of easy-to-find yarn for it so it may not be too expensive depedning on what yarn you choose (a BIG plus for me and I'm sure for all the other student knitters out there). And this the the best part... "All the information needed to make this a successful first colorwork and/or steeking project is included here in exhaustive detail." Hooray for beginner instructions! What do you guys think??

ooh, I love this one, but I am *terrified* of steeking and/or colorwork...

I've been eyeing this one for a while. Never done steeking or colorwork either. I bought the pattern yesterday and added it to my Ravelry queue.

Oh, yes, yes! I've been wanting to make this for a long time, and had thought about it for this fall! I knit my first colorwork cardigan a few months ago and followed Eunny's instructions for the steeks. They were very easy and not scary at all thanks to her fabulous tutorials.

I agree I was thinking this was totally the time to do this knit. I have really been wanting to do this and I think it would be stellar for the fall.

I love it-- and I've never tried steeking before, so this might be a fun project to try it on!
