This is a project/pattern I initially first did in 2014!

I wanted to try my hand at making a simple waistcoat with granny squares. With lots inspiration gathered from everywhere and lots of restarts this was the most basic design that is easy to adjust in size and to play with color

I need to thank my Sister-In-Law which was my muse so to speak, as she has wanted one for a long time. I am happy to report she likes it!!
