I attempted to knit a pattern swatch, there is an error in the chart key...  I'm sure they will post a correction ASAP.

 The pattern does say you can up size it easily...

The magazine is now available in bookstores..

Love this vest, but it's too small for me. Why didn't you include XL?

Love this vest.  I am excited to get the Pattern.  This is going to be a nice working vest to keep out morning chill and have my arms free for working.  I preordered the Knitting Traditions spring magazine,

Just as an aside, I really hope that the pattern will come out individually. I don't really like anything else in the magazine, but that vest is gorgeous.

I love the design for the flare at the hips.

Is it possible to buy this pattern separately?  It's beautiful!
