I wish I'd read the reviews before purchasing this pattern. Like many others I'm not a beginner crocheter but am disappointed at how the pattern is written,with scant instructions. I am making every round work with very slow progress. Don't think I'll bother to continue.

Like previous posts, I struggled with the pattern which obviously hasn't been updatedcorrected as late as June 2022. But like others, having crocheted over 40 years I was able to adapt the paattern to "get it to work". My note to anyone though is you will NOT get this finished product if you have to use more than one cake of Scheepjes Whirl! It only comes out like the pictures if you are a small and using 1 cake! When you add the second cake you need to think how you are going to proceed, with the outer color green or white or start over with the dark purple or blue! I made a size XL, on gauge and I'm 5' 4" and the bottom hits me like the purple one not as long as the blue! Gave it a 3 because it's still cute but not what is pictured unless you are a size small

I own this pattern and I'e made one vest and am on my second one. The first one I made with #4 weight yarn and used a smaller hook and smaller size, checking gauge for my true size and it turned out lovely. I am making my 2nd one with #1 weight yarn and correct hook to meet gauge. The only problem I'e had with the wording on the pattern is round 2 of the armholes. Its very confusing how and when to work in the chains made in round 1. After many hours of fiddling with it, I was able to complete the pattern the first time but I can't find my notes from a couple of years ago and find myself fiddling all over again. I love the look of the vest and will continue to try to remember how to figure it out so it's finished by the end of summer.

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.
