This is why Ravelry was created

Back-to-school Vest

I started my Back-to-School vest from Fitted Knits in February 2008, so about 6 months after I joined Raverly. So why, may I ask, I did not look at the other Back-to-School vest BEFORE knitting it? Stupidity, I guess.

What's wrong with it? Well, pretty much what many of the other 433 knitters who made this say: the straps are too wide, the neck line is too high, it needs decreases after the bust increases, it is too long.

So, after weaving all the ends (yes, I often do that, denial denial denial), I have decided I need to rip back to the armholes in order to fix 3 out of 4 problems, or at least one inch into the ribbing to fix all 4 problems.

This sounds like a good candidate for my Ravelympics 2008.
