Comments about JAMES C. BRETT JB290 Waistcoats:

The pattern is good and the finished project is pretty. However, the yarn is very soft and easy to break. The estimate of yarn should add 1 more skein.

      Comments about JAMES C. BRETT JB290 Waistcoats:

      I am very disappointed in the lack of diagram. Also, metric measurements only are used in the instructions. It's a problem when you see: " Cont until back measures 26cm, ending with a ws row. Work 10 rows more". You then have to shape the armholes. It would be helpful to know the back length to the armholes.
      I started with the back and I am making a diagram as I knit.
      I also purchased 2 pullover patterns and I have similar comments about them.
