Knotty Vest Finale 伦敦结



Project: Knotty Vest 伦敦结
Pattern: Knotty Vest by Ram Wools Yarn Co-op (free download on Ravelry)
Yarn: Passport Yarn Co. London, 80% wool, 13% acrylic, 7% rayon
Yardage: 770 yards in stash, used about 550 yards
Needles: Size 8
Cast on: July 17 2011

Cast off: September 3, 2011
Cost: estimate $20. The yarn was being discontinued and there was a big sale at Michael's.
Notes: Although the cables look complex, this was a quick knit. I made the front and back the same, and lowered the neckline to match the shape of the cables.


Happy Fiber Arts Friday! Join the party on Andrea's blog and leave me a comment!
