The vest is beautiful and I could not wait to start, but I have never be so disappointed in my life. The instructions are not clear (I have been knitting and crocheting for more than 40 years), and even when I follow the pattern to the letter I never end up with the same number of stitches. I have made unnumerous attempts and used different yarns, downloaded the review of row 7 provided on the site, to no avail. I wish the designer would take another look at the pattern and try to rewrite it differently so we could understand the instructions better.

The vest is absolutely beautiful...but, this is the hardest pattern I've ever tried to make. I've been crocheting for 59 years so I'm not a beginner. I wish the designer would have a tutorial or either a diagram. My granddaughter loved the vest and I sure wanted to make it for her. After many attempts I've given up.

I absolutely love the yarn this pattern requires! The instructions were not easy to read, but I ploughed through it. I used the right gauge, but my finished work ended up nothing like on the picture - it was way too short. So, I pulled it all up, became creative and added my own touches to the instructions, and I ended up with a vest that looks very similar to the one on the picture, and I am very happy with it.

I ordered the correct yarn as shown for the vest and couldn't wait to get started. After several attempts at round 1 - 5 I can now understand the pattern. It helped to write it out myself in large letters. The only problem I have now is working with the fine yarn and the size 6.5mm hook. Would it be better with a different size. Also working with the dark color to begin with is a problem as the stitches are hard to find. Given up for now as I am getting frustrated with it.

Like others I have found this pattern difficult to follow. The instructions are not overly clear and would love to have a diagram of the pattern to enable me to follow as well. Un picked what I started as it did not look like the design. Will try again with a finer wool to see if that makes a difference.
