Howth Vest

Posted on: January 7, 2011

I’m feeling very proud of myself today. I’ve published my first design!

It’s a vest I designed for my Dad. It’s worked in the round and uses Elizabeth Zimmermann’s Kangaroo Pouch technique for the steeked v-neck and armholes. It uses 3.5mm and 4mm circular needles. I chose Drops Karisma Superwash for it as it’s 100% wool, therefore suitable for steeking. It’s a lovely yarn and also very reasonably priced.

You can download the pattern from Ravelry: Download Now

Please let me know if you knit it, or if you have any feedback on it. Like I said, it’s my first ever pattern, so any advice approeciated!

Here’s a link to a slideshow of the other pics I have. For some reason, I can’t embed the slideshow today.Click!
