Grew and grew
Eh. Pattern is fibe apart from the odd front band joining, however the yarn is inclined to grow a lot in knitting. Save your sanity, use a different yarn!
Women’s waistcoat Sirdar Dapple DK. 8068
I am a very plain knitter but this looks like I can understand how to knit it up, so far with three projects waiting to be sewn up and finished I have not got this pattern on the needles yet but I am hurrying so as I can start on it.
Nice pattern had not realised the back was cinched in but I like it a lot.
