I have started a new vest pattern. It was written up as a top down pattern. Piece of cake thought I but it instructed me to knit the back down to the armpit, then picking up the shoulder stitches on one side and knit it down the same point and then the other side. THEN the whole thing was joined and it will continue to knit down. It was a bit strange for a while but it is working fine now. I hope to crank this out pretty quickly-I don't want this one to languish like the last one!
I am using my handspun Jacob wool for this. It is not as soft as the commercial yarn of the last vest but it will be fine over my t-shirts as planned.
Cables down the front but no other texture so it will move along very quickly-the only other changes will be keeping count of the cable and occasional shaping for the waist.
