I finally had the tripod set up and so took pictures of me wearing my Kaffe Fasset Squiggle Vest:
As per usual, I changed the pattern to knit the vest top down. It was still worked back and forth as it is in cotton; I do not know if you can steek yarns other than wool and did not want to find out on this project.
It is very pretty:
Pattern: Squiggle Stripes by Kaffe Fasset in Kaffe Fasset Knits Again
Yarn: Mostly Knit Picks Shine Sport plus some Jaeger Pure Cotton. I tried to match KF’s colors but it was hard to tell what a color was by its name.
Needles: 2.25 mm/US 1
I changed the pattern to a top down vest using Barbara Walker’s wonderful book, Knitting from the Top Down. I also added a wider button band using two colors rather than the picot edging. Oh, while I changed direction I knitted the vest, I followed the charts the right way, so essentially the squiggles are upside down.
Here’s a side/back view:
This was the project that killed my needle, remember back in the summer when I had some knitting disasters? Fortunately, it snapped when I was knitting the bottom hem and so there was only one color on the needle.
BTW I knitted and completed 24 projects last year. That is slightly under one a fortnight (US translation: one every 2 weeks). They are all shown here and I will add a link to my sidebar —>
