This lovely yarn has finally been transformed into this lovely vest. I love, love, love cables, but they do slow my knitting down. I have even mastered knitting cables without a cable needle, although it was a little difficult with this yarn.
The yarn is a super soft blend of merino, llama, bamboo and Donegal. I really should have knit a full sweater out of it because I will always wear a shirt underneath the vest and can’t really appreciate its softness.
I knit the large size and planned that there would be a bit of negative ease. I also extended the length of the vest body below the underarms.
I measured this vest against another that I had knit. However, I did not take into account the negative ease. So when I put the vest on my matronly body, it pulls upward.
It especially pulls up in the front. This is a challenge I need to correct in future knitting projects.
