Shortly after completing this wonderful fair isle vest in November 2012, it felted in my washing machine. After several attempts to rescue it, I was not happy with the armhole and neckline ribbing. Here is the latest version of the vest with new armhole ribbing, neckline ribbing and some fitting modifications If you are interested you can follow my video journal for this project.

I like the darker colors on the arm holes and neck modification! It came out beautiful!

Hello Karen, Thank you for your feedback. I agree with you that the dark colour looks good. I would have changed the hem ribbing to match but ... you guessed it... no more dark yarn. On the next yarn order, will get another ball of dark. Cheers, Ariana
