October 2002
Rocky Mountain Llama Fiber Pool
Fingering (14 wpi) ?
1865 yards (1705 m)

Sizes: Finished chest circumference 38.5, 42 or 46.5 inches (98, 106.5, 118 cm).

Yarn: The pattern specifies two yarns from Rocky Mountain Llama Fiber Pool. Yarns from the pool are available mainly from the Co-op booth at fiber events. It may be easier to substitute another fingering weight yarn. NOTE: Yarn is used doubled throughout unless otherwise specified. The main color of the vest is black, with three additional colors for the patterned border.

Needles: Needles size differs for each vest size, as the vest is sized by gauge. Pattern suggests a 24 inch circular needle as follows:

  • Size A: US 3 (3.25 mm)
  • Size B: US 4 (3.5 mm)
  • Size C: US 5 (3.75 mm)
  • All sizes: 24” / 60 cm and 16” / 40 cm circular needles one size smalled than needle used for body

Gauge: This vest is sized by gauge, so gauge will determine finished size. Using garter stitch on larger needles:

  • Size A: 22 sts and 44 rows = 4 inches
  • Size B: 20 sts and 40 rows = 4 inches
  • Size C: 18 sts and 36 rows = 4 inches

Techniques (included in book):

  • Chart reading

  • Steeks

  • Pick up stitches by knitting

  • Three-needle bind-off
