vest!


vest!
Originally uploaded by Needleworks, Inc..
Made of: 3 skeins of Noro Transitions, knit on size 9 addi turbos

Time to knit: about 3 days

I made this pattern up as I went along. I knit a 2x2 rib in the round until just under the bust area, then started working back and forth, shaping the v neck and increasing for the bust at the same time. Then I divided the piece in 3 and worked the back, and left and right fronts seperately. All you have to do is sew up the shoulders and pick up stitches around the V and the armholes to finish it.

(Yes, I always read while standing up against the wall. Sheesh!)
