Alberta Vest

I went back to a slightly older Jared Flood pattern, Alberta, which was published in the Spring 2009 "Wild Fibers" magazine. Alberta is a men's vest with alternating 3-row stripes of color. The use of three rows of knitting drives a need to steek instead of knitting flat. Because Alberta was shaped for men, I used the Huxley shaping, but incorporated the striping and the V-neck of Alberta.

For Alberta, I had spun yarn back around the time I bought the magazine, and the yarn has been patiently waiting to become a vest. The fiber is Gale's Art BFL, in the colors Peacock and Ruby Swirl.




Happy Knitting,
Lisa Kay

Hey there. Love the hair cut - you look terrific. Fun vest - those Noro colors are really too much fun, aren't they! Mitchell looks great in his Superman costume. Won't be long before he has real muscles like that...
