It is a so-called vest but it will not remain so. It will become a sweater. The pattern is rather bouncy and this is why it seems that the vest is too short, while in reality it reaches the waist. The yarn Regia Stretch Colour is quite pleasant. Officially, it is a sock yarn but is suitable for other things as well.
It's coming along nicely :-)) Are you going to add a cowl?
Diana, thank you! Yes, there will be a large collar, at least this was the initial idea:).
