Okay, so I finally finished the flowery vest from Girly Knit!
Yeah, that’s Peter’s thumb in the photo. I was too lazy to crop. Here’s a closeup of one of the flowers, complete with beads:
I tell you, mohair is warm! The vest in Girly Knit is white and styled a bit differently. Here is a picture of it. Okay, some specs:
Pattern: basically made it up. It’s just a plain old V-neck vest. I measured an old vest and went from there. It’s an 8K 2P rib.
Yarn: Jo Sharp Kid Mohair in color 603 from elann. I almost got away with using THREE balls, but I had to break into a fourth to knit the neckband. I used 5mm/US 8 needles, but my gauge was looser than what is specified on the band. For the green I used Marvelous Mohair from Steadfast Fibers in color Groovy Green. The orange is Mango Moon.
Am I forgetting any details? I am usually terrible about specs, so I feel very virtuous right now for remembering to save the labels!
