I would like to share my first FO, not my first FO, but the first I’m sharing with you. I present you with the Back to School U-Neck vest from Fitted Knits. I knitted it up in Patons Zhivago on size 9US Denise Interchangeable needles. I did some modifications which I think worked rather well, these included, starting with a second size for the bottom and decreasing at side seams to the smallest size for the bust. I also lowered the neckline a little and made the straps narrower. All up I think think it is a great pattern and I’m happy with the FO, however the real test is how much wear I get out of it. As it is summer here in NZ, it has a few months of it sitting in a draw before it will be worn, but I will update on its wear-ability come winter.
