Notes

My 2012 CGOA Design Competition Grand Prize winning garment. Incorporates two new techniques I have developed for Reversible Intarsia and Endless Reversible Cables. I will post more details on my blog very soon but wanted to share photos.

Designed in memory of my daughter Rowan, the vest is completely reversible, and worked in double crochet. With tiny red beads for berries on one side and swarovski crystal flowers on the other the whole thing is framed by cabling all around the edges.
