Pearl Vest (Pattern Inside)

A while ago, I ordered We Are Knitters Whitney Cardigan kit.  Unfortunately, I didn’t like how over-sized it was.  I decided to make a vest cardigan out of it instead.

I’m still new to writing patterns.  If you end up trying this and something doesn’t look right, please don’t hesitant to contact me.

Repeat above steps for right shoulder.

Sew front and back together leaving enough room for armholes.

I can’t remember how many skeins I used for this vest.  I’m guessing about two and a half skeins.  The Whitney Cardigan came with seven skeins of wool.  I used most of the skeins for the modified Whitney Cardigan, Pearl White Fuzzy Beanie, Aster Flower Cowl, and this vest.
