Vest

Vest

Knitted on the Bond.

The yarn is a double knitting which would normally be knitted with keyplate 2 but I used keyplate 3 so that it would knit up looser.

I made this just to use up the leftovers. There wasn’t supposed to be a hem or rib as I didn’t think I would have enough yarn. When it was finished the cast on edges were flaring out but luckily there was enough yarn for me to do a couple of rounds of (UK) Double Crochet.
