Or, at least, me!
I’m very happy with how this vest came out. It may be the best, most well-fitting vest I’ve made. Especially, I like how the garter-stitch running in different directions gives the heathered Mushishi even more texture and dimension. I’ve said it before, EZ’s generally blocky and dated designs (60s, 70s) can really benefit from a) short-row or other shaping, and b) using zippers rather than buttons for a sleeker, more modern look. Behold my proud creation:
Will try to replicate in another yarn. I took notes as I went and it actually is a pretty simple hack on the EZ ASJ.
Has a bit of an ancient Japanese armor vibe, no?
