Another FO that I've failed to blogged about earlier. And I'm taking the opportunity of this Boxing Day holiday to organize some photos in the camera before I next resurface again here, hopefully not before too long. There are some odd balls of colourful yarn here and there that are not scrappy enough to be classified as leftovers for the miter squares that I'm knitting from time to time (don't count on seeing an FO yet, maybe it'll be ready in a few years' time). So I cast on something for CY.
The inspiration came from the vest Diana knitted for her LL as seen here. And CY's just a reverse of her colours (copy cat me). Here is CY trying to do the 'V'.
CY just has this thing of making the V sign when her photo is being taken. I wonder where she caught the bug.
Now she got the 'V'. The pattern is the Cosy Tank Top from Lucinda Guy's And So to Bed. More photos from the book here. The red is Bouton D'or DK yarn in the colour Azteque (2 balls) and the orange is Adriafil DK (2 balls). Needles: 3.75mm and 4mm.
CY absolutely loves the hood. But as this vest has no hood, she always wears it with her bright pink hoodie.
The top has a simple design with interesting stitch patterns to play with. It has an nice cast on edge pattern too.
There should be a row of crochet around the bottom which I did and the armholes which I didn't do. Plain laziness on my part.
I did crochet around the neck and it gives the vest more structure. So I may just crochet round the armholes one of these days.
