We Took To The Woods Vest

Perhaps you noticed the hand-knit vest I was wearing at Mitchell's birthday party? Well, I had just finished knitting it using my "We Took To The Woods" handspun. (Previous posts on the yarn here and here.)

I used instructions for a top-down "sleeveless sweater" in Barbara Walker's "Knitting From The Top." The shoulders start with a provisional cast on, followed by short-row shoulder shaping. I like the way the short row shoulders look a little bit like a saddle-shoulder, emphasized by the variegated yarn.

Happy Knitting,
Lisa Kay
