I’ve always had a fascination with argyle, but I’ve never knit it because I have an aversion to intarsia. In comes the Textured Argyle Vest: the best of both worlds! It’s an argyle pattern, but it’s all texture, no intarsia! The combination of my hand-dyed yarn in the Into the Woods colorway with the argyle texture really reminds me of the forest, which I love. However, the argyle pattern is subtle, so if you want something more bold, go for the Diamond Vest, knit in Knit Picks Main Line. Both vests are knit bottom-up in the round with feminine waist shaping and overlapping square ribbed shawl collars. At the neckline and armholes, the vests are divided into three sections: left front, right front, and back, which are worked separately and then grafted together at the shoulders. They’re a quick knit and great to toss on over a crew-neck or a long-sleeved shirt.
