Updated Basketweave Vest FO pics

I am back from vacation! I had so much fun in Northern Cali that I almost didn't want to come back. More on the trip to San Francisco, my experiences at SF yarn stores, and suddenly growing yarn stash to follow later.

My dad loved posing for his FO pictures. So much so that he insisted on taking lots of them complete with the many hats/scarves that I have made him in the past. I'm glad to know that there is at least 1 (well 2, including my mom) people in this world who appreciate my handknits/handcrochets works so much. :-D

The matching Koolhaas I planned to knit for my dad was a bust, so I'll start that over some day. However, I did manage to finish knitting a matching scarf for my mother's Gretel. I binded off the night before my flight. Talk about the nick of time! However, I forgot to take a picture of it. :-(

Great vest. Can you share the pattern? I've found it in a knit version, but I want to crochet it. Thanks
