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.

I just received my yarn for this and was so excited to get started. I, like Renee H. am struggling like crazy with this pattern and I've been crocheting for 55 years! I want to make it as a surprise for my sister so the good news is, I don't have a time limit to figure it out. The bad news is, it may take me the rest of my life to figure it out! I got stuck on the very first row. That is not a good sign. Visual directions would be awesome.

Hard time with pattern. It doesn't make sense with the photo. I had to get help with the second row and now cannot do it. I have been crocheting for a long time and this is a very difficult pattern to follow. I hope they have a revision.

I found this pattern to be very difficult to follow, and I've been crocheting for many, many years. It looked easy enough on the model. I wish there were visual directions for each round, rather than written ones that confuse even a veteran crocheter like myself.

I love the pattern, but a couple things to note:
I would like to know the size of the finished piece on the model. I made the medium, checked my guage, used the same yarn and hook, but the proportion is different. Mine isn't as long.
There is no way to do the armhole edging in the same color as shown on the model unless you buy two skeins of yarn. I just used the remainder of my yarn for the armhole, which meant it turned out a different color.
