Maren Two color modifications:
1) CO at neck and cast off at sleeves in black, changed waist cast off to make sweater a bit longer, removed the black and the slits.
2) I planned charcoal grey as the accent color but after several yoke rows I realized I’d switched blue with the accent grey at the start… so had to switch them below first decrease…
Design Mods:
Wanted a light vest to wear over T-shirts. Added waist shaping, shortened length
Finished front opening with applied i cord and i-cord drawstring
Finished bottom and sleeves with moss stitch in MC then black rib for 3 rows on sleeves. Later- removed black rib, knitted stocking st another 1.5 in, the 1.5 in moss st, both in the mc blue.
