Now - it's officially a finished knit object. Next, it's in the queue to be written up as a pattern. I'm writing patterns as fast as I can!
I just love the belt. I made it optional, in case the vest is to be worn open. But I think it looks so great with the thick knit belt. Found some great "buckles" that are really 2 round rings that look like bone, but are probably just plastic. Went better with the buttons than I imagined!
