I knitted this vest for my mother a few years ago. The graphic design is based on a children's folkloric sweater called Joyous Colors I saw in "Small Sweaters", a Norwegian knit design book by Lise Kostad and Tone Takle. I changed some of the colors a bit and made my own shaping. I'm thinking of making myself a sweater using this happy color combination. It brightens up this shortest, darkest day of the year!
