Modification Mondays: Que Sera, Sera Vest

Que Sera Vest

Original Pattern: Que Sera

Knitter Extraordinaire: Elspeth (Rav Id, Blog)

Mods: Turned the original cardigan pattern into a pullover vest, with a deeper scoop neckline. Project page is here.

Que Sera Vest

What Makes This Awesome: This fantastic vest was borne out of that classic knitter's problem- running out of yarn. Elspeth actually planned on knitting the cardigan as a pullover. She had knitted the sleeves (and even made sleeve mods) before she realized that she wouldn't have enough yarn to finish it. So she frogged the sleeves, and completed the cardigan-turned-pullover-turned-vest. Talk about turning lemons into lemonade! Doesn't she look amazing?! I love this vest, I love this outfit. I want to go shopping in Elspeth's closet.

What a brilliant idea! It's win-win...no frogging necessary, the yarn was used up, and she has an adorable new vest! And yes, I love the entire outfit. Those boots, omg.
