Beautiful vest! I'm signed up for this class. Could you explained how you turned it into an open front cardigan vest with buttons & buttonholes?

Sorry about the typo; that of course should be "explain."

I started my steek stitches at the very beginning adding the extra eight stitches center front of ribbing, straight up until I got to the decreases for the v-neck, then continued in pattern.

Thanks, I'll try out your technique so I have a Cardigan Vest instead of a pullover vest. You were very helpful!

It's beautiful--I wish I'd known how to do a cardigan, but who knows? Maybe I'll try a second fair isle!

This is gorgeous. Your colors are great and I love your idea of converting this to button up vest. Beautiful

Thanks. I love it and wear it a lot more than I probably would have worn a pullover. Sure enjoyed that CRAFTSY class, too!
