FO: Sweater Vest

I have been working away on a few projects and now I finally have one off the needles! This was a really quick knit and took me no time at all to knit up.

The pattern is "Tank Top" by Erika Knight in her book "Classic Knits". The yarn is Rowan Big Wool in Smokey and I used size US 15 and US 17 needles.

I like this - but I don't love it. The pattern has some flaws. And it is too short. I should have listened to the complaints on Ravelry and knit this at least an inch to an inch and a half longer. I feel like I am always pulling it down. Also, the shoulders are a bit too bulky - the pattern bind off was really weird. I should have used a 3 needle bind off and disregarded the pattern. Other than those little complaints, I think it is cute. I will definitely get some wear out of it.
