This is the vest that I knitted for my oldest granddaughter. She wanted bright purple, and so it is. You know, when I knit with knitting worsted, no matter what size needles or what brand of yarn I use, darned if I can get the 5 stitches to the inch that most patterns call for. I bought those new bamboo needles, and I just love them, but that didn't help. And I tried buying a better brand of yarn, but no dice. I guess that I knit more loosely than other people. My solution was to start a file with knitting patterns that are 16 stitches to 4 inches. I just leaf through that file, and I can change the stitch pattern if I want. This pattern was in an old vest leaflet, and I changed the knitting pattern to k1, p1 on one row and plain knit on the other. Anyway, I'm saving this vest to give for the holidays.
