The Cosmic Teleidoscope Vest
Elizabeth Zimmermann’s PI shawl was the inspiration for this vest. You start with 9 sts on #4 dpn’s and end up with over 500 sts on a 40” needle. I used 5 different colors of Koigu Kppm - 2 skeins of each color. You can easily use Claudia Handpaints of Shi bui as well. I have taught a class on this concept and the 6 vests have turned out amazing… all unique. I have a second one on needles and it looks entirely different than the original. To see some of the works in progress go to freshpurls.com and look at the blog site.
This is a big circle with armholes created part wasy through. The directions will help you know how to get the proper fit for YOU. This project is a good way to use up your sock yarn stash. Or do it all in one color. Please email me with any questions you have about the pattern. Looking forward to see your creation. xo
The vest knit mainly in blue is using ShiBui, Claudia, Dream in Color and Koigu sock yarn. I did not put an armhole in this piece and gave you two other options; baby blanket (washable) or a wrap (fold in half, and wear over shoulders with a pin). Good times.
