Note: I'm getting the requests sent out right away. If you request a booklet and don't get it within 24 hours, let me know. It may have gotten lost in the shuffle
About 10 years ago, I designed a set of three seasonal Fair Isle vests for Knit Picks, who produced and sold the pattern for years. Eventually, sales dropped enough so that it wasn't worth KP's trouble to keep printing the booklet, so the rights reverted back to me.
As a thank-you to all of you for sticking it out with my blather, I'm making the booklet (in PDF form) available to anyone who asks for it- just leave your e-mail address in the comments, and I'll send the file to you. It's 2.5MB, and there are patterns and charts for V-neck pullover and button-front vests, knit with KP's Palette yarns (though of course, any fingering weight yarn will do, and indeed, some of the original colors may not be available any more). The pattern is sized from Child 24" chest- Adult 52" chest.
For some reason, there is no photo of the Halloween Vest in the booklet, so I'm posting it here. Be warned, the Halloween Vest was once named One of the Ugliest Vests Ever Designed by What Not to Knit, though I absolutely stand by the design. It was not supposed to be beautiful, it was just supposed to be fun. And it could have been even more *fun*, if The Hub had not noticed that my chart looked like I was declaring Boob all the way across the chest. He suggested adding the exclamation point.
At any rate, here are the vests in the booklet. Again, if you want the PDF booklet, post your e-mail address in the comments, and I'll send it out to you.

I'd love a copy! And I think the Halloween vest is cute. (Although, since I'm wearing what's probably classified as an ugly Christmas sweater today, perhaps you should disregard my opinion.) email@example.com
I would love a copy of these patterns! And I thought the Halloween vest was great. With or without boobs. kathryn.hagen AT gmail DOT com

Attention Linda: Your e-mail bounced. Do you have another addy I can send the file to?
Of course I would like a copy... For my pattern collection! I even took Nancy Schroyer's class at SOAR but still am not sure I want to do Fair Isle, but I really love the blue one... Is that pattern in your Fair Isle book?
In Illinois, heading for SD!
they are all adorable, and I would love to have a copy.
my best wishes for christmas
I remember those vests, and I admired all of them at the time. I considered getting the snowman one, but light blue is not really my color. They are adorable, and the Halloween one could be considered one of the cutest vests ever - definitely not the ugliest.
I have these patterns and have knitted the snowman and halloween vests. It was lots of fun and I made the mittens to match the snowman vest. georgienne

Merry Christmas to you and all your family!

That's "tally" for Tallahassee, FL -- hot, humid, buggy, and jungle-like. The thought of wearing knitwear now makes me sweat, but I love to knit anyway.
