Deep-V Argyle Vest

I forgot to get the boyfriend to take a picture of this on me, but it doesn’t look that fabulous on me anyway, so you get a laid flat on the bed shot.  It ended up being a little too loose in the chest area, but everywhere else it is really snug.  I did try and adjust the pattern to my personal needs, but I still need some100_2765 work on that I guess.  I am still proud of having knit this project, I did a lot of things I hadn’t done before!  I did the crochet steeks, but they didn’t work out for me so I also did machine sewed steeks.  The colorwork was tons of fun and I love, love the way it turned out!  All in all, I’d say this is a pretty great knit, and if I did it again (which I’m very tempted) I’d be more careful to get it closer to my own measurements, and I would definitely use a lighter yarn.  The Telemark says it is a sport weight, but I think I’d consider it more of a heavy DK.  It just seemed like something even lighter would be better.  Anyway.

  • Pattern – Deep-V Argyle Vest by Eunny Jang
  • Yarn – Knit picks Telemark in Aubergine (5 balls) and Icicle (4 balls)
  • Needles – US Size 5
  • Took me – Under a week
  • Comments – Great knit, very fun to knit, just wished it fit me a tiny bit better.  Overall I’m pretty satisfied with the results!
