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!
- 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.
We just finished up Vested Interest, a cute little summer cover-up. It was super EASY and ridiculously FAST – instant gratification!
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)
