i’m not sure how it should be, but it seems like i’m going in the direction of a wide round one. working with the picture in photoshop is also helpful in trying out different ideas.
also – i’m realizing that the vest could be a tad slimmer… maybe i’ll have to make someone else wear it and hopefully blocking/ironing it will make the pattern more even.
it has grown a little bit in the last week… the way the cable pattern moves a little to the left is a bonus – i didn’t see it coming, but am happy about it i think it will make an interesting touch to this long vest. i have decreased the number of stiches by 18 over the last 6 reports to make it a fitted fit, and think i have succeeded in making it invisible. now, doing an invisible increase will be the next challenge… i do plan on posting the diagram for the cable/lace pattern soon.
i’ve been looking for a long vest in shops and searching the net for patterns without any success…! so here it goes - designing my own . the cable/lace pattern was found in an old pattern
yarn: vamsegarn from rauma
needles: 5 mm
pattern : own
gauge: 2 “cables” / 18 stitches = 10,5 cm
