I'm looking at ladies vests patterns...
I am meeting with someone tomorrow about taking a commission to knit a button front vest - do you have any idea how difficult it is to find such a pattern? I could write one, may end up doing so...
I found this
I find the directions somewhat hysterical
Materials: 8 oz. of Jaeger "Spiral-Spun" (7d. per oz.), 1 pair each of No. 5 and No. 9 Jaeger knitting needles, and 4 buttons the size of a shilling.
Casting-on: If you cast on with two needles work into the back of all cast on sts. to produce firm edges, but if you use the thumb method this is not necessary.
Anyone have any idea how big a shilling is, or what the method of cast on is if you use the thumb?
If I take this commission I have one week to get it knit, so it will be a nice little diversion.
