LOVE this vest - SO wearable and funky!! Is this a one-size fits all or is it designed by size? I am a plus-size. Thank you!
karenclements answered:
Thanks! It's a one size but easily adjustable and noted in the pattern. It's 42" across and as you can see the front panels have plenty of overlap. I've seen this knit as is on many body types and it looks great!

Fairness asked:
I just purchased your pattern, and saw that it says #19 24 " circular needed. As a beginner simple knitter can you clarify? Is this 19 needles, and 24 " circular for armholes or? Can this be knit on regular needles or does one need cirucular?
karenclements answered:
Hi, the size of the needle is a #19 with the length being 24". You can knit the piece on a straight needle but I find the weight of it is a lot to support as you go along. But if that's what you already have go ahead and use them. One thing to think about with straight needles is the length, if they're not long enough the work will bunch up making it difficult to work. The armhole will need a circular if you are going to reinforce it although I know of some people who have skipped this part. Hope this helps! and thanks for your purchase!
