Pattern: Interweave Knits Spring 2005, Flowered Waistcoat - with modifications.
Yarn: Rowan Yorkshire Tweed Aran in Wild Plum
Modifications: The obvious one is that I chose not to do the intarsia. The fabric itself has rectangles of reverse stockinet so I let this texture provide the visual interest and I think it shows off the tweed. Secondly, I knit the armhole seed stitch bands in the round for 6 rows and left them flat instead of making the rolled band look of the pattern. I did, however, follow the pattern for the rolled seed stitch neck band.
