The versatility of this pattern is outstanding even , if you follow the instructions , you will find yourself in the possesion of this fantastic vest. I used 375 grams of Noro SIlk Garde, at 50 grams a skein you do the math, is about 7.5 skeins, I may definitely make a hat ,perhaps a pair of mittens.
I like the way it wears and I am hoping to have a zipper put into it. This pattern is very reversible. I really like the way it came out. It is one of the few crochet Vests that is great to wear for a man.
