Wrap Vest

A wrap vest inspired by Soozs. I bought this remnant from Knitwit for $8. It is a knitted wool fabric and there was just enought to wrap around myself. I cut out 2 armholes and hemmed them and the edges. I really should have cut the armholes smaller as hemming them made them quite big. I thought I would wet it a bit and pop it in the dryer, but it must be superwash as it hasn't made much difference. I am hapy with it though and I have a bit more wool for another one.

Oh my lordy! For a minute there, I thought you were going to say, "I machine knitted it"....

Love it. (Love it EVEN MORE because you didn't machine knit it).

Your top is great, it looks like it's a lovely warm one for winter and over other tops.

Like the style... I am going to give this a go with some lengths I have in my stash... I need more things to keep warm in these rather cold WA houses ;) (seriously it's warmer out than in!)(but then again it's the same temp as a British summer, so as an ex pat I shouldn't complain!!)

I really love this! I'm kinda new to sewing clothing for myself, but this kinda seems like an easy project. Would you consider blogging more in detail on the pattern shape and how you sewed up the wool knit?
