NEW SAMPLE Time Traveller’s Vest

Cascade Spuntaneous Time Travelers Vest

Time Traveller’s Vest

We just finished this super quick little vest! I found the pattern is a neat little book (I stumbled across the book and downloaded it from my public library), Highland Knits: Knitwear Inspired by the Highlander Series. The vest is a fast (15mm needles) and easy knit. We used a super bulky, super soft merino wool, Cascade Spuntaneous – instant gratification!

Hacks

  • We cast on for the arms using a 10mm/US15 needle to limit gaping.
  • We bound off using a 20mm/US35 needle to make our tension a bit more even.

FREEBIE Envelope Wrap

Knit Envelope Wrap

I saw this and thought of you! seriously, I thought it was cool little vesty-cardie what can be whipped up fairly quickly, and without a huge commitment. I think of them as casual projects – something not too serious or that you have to invest too much time or energy into. It’s just enough, and you get a nice garment out of it at the end! It would knit up smashingly with Cascade 220, the depth of colour and the subtle texture of Cascade 220 Heathers would lend it some extra interest (like in the picture above)

Size

  • XS/S/M (L/XL/2XL, 3/4/5XL)
  • 28-38(40-48, 54-62) inches

New Store Sample: Pebbles Baby Vest

Last week Liane whipped up this adorable little baby vest, Pebbles, with less than 1 skein of Madeline Tosh Tosh Merino DK.

The Yarn
OMG, Madeline Tosh Tosh Merino DK  is a yummy, yummy yarn! It’s a 100% merino superwash, squishy single ply, with a little bit of sheen, and the beautiful subtle colouring Tosh is know for. It’s called a DK but it blooms, so we used a 4mm needle. 

The Pattern
1. It’s free.  2. It’s been pretty popular on Ravelry and has over 3400 projects, so there are lots of notes from other people.  3. It’s only one size, but if you want to make it larger consider browsing through some of the aforementioned notes.  4. It comes from the mind of professional designer Nikol Lohr, but it’s a “this is how I did it” freebie.  

Details
Needles: 4mm needles
Notions: 7 little buttons + matching thread
Pattern: FREE Pebbles

FREE Truman Vest Pattern in Berroco Blackstone Tweed


Berroco just published this really cute Free Vest Pattern named Truman using Berroco Blackstone Tweed!  I’ve been working with Blacsktone Tweed this week and am happy to report that it is soft, easy to work with, and has a lot of stretch to it (for some reason most tweeds do).  

The above pattern, Truman, is the worsted weight, hooded version of the vest pattern Berroco published in their Blackstone Tweed book #298, named Dickens, which is made with Blackstone Tweed Chunky.
