Even at that mostly complete stage, I encountered 'issues'. It was too long. Bamboo, being a yarn with drape, caused the vest to grow in length. I put it in a 'time out' until I could decide how to treat the length issue. In the end, I decided to sew and cut. I sewed a line of tiny zig zag stitches about two inches from the bottom, then cut off the excess. That was an obvious fix for length, but then I struggled with how to finish off that cut edge.
Yesterday I worked two rows of single crochet down the fronts and around the arm holes
The vest is bright! A sort of 'in-your-face', 'here comes Brenda' bright. But, it matches my shoes!
How cool is that?
